PROGRESS OVER POLITICIANS!
Dear Voters of the City of New Orleans. If you love New Orleans, Invest into our people.
Join the people campaign for Progress Over Politicians to fight the crime in New Orleans.
Since graduating from Southern University, I have spent my career fighting for the people against those that take advantage of them. We have the power to fight back and stop the recycling of politicism, re-electing politicians who have created safe havens within our political system. These are the politicians that make promises they don’t keep. The people who have forgotten their obligations to the citizens of this great community. These are the people that are more interested in the next election and building a resume than building community. I say, vote Progress Over Politicians to fight the crime in New Orleans.
The $388 million American Rescue Plan Act grant funds will bring new jobs and new tax revenue to the City of New Orleans. Now is the time to grow our economy and create jobs paying livable wages. We need to attract companies that will offer higher wages. We need to stimulate the economy and become the bustling City of the South. Property taxes continue to rise as services decline. Stop draining the citizens and give them what they are paying for. We need a person with the experience to effectively address the challenges we face today.
