A hearty “Thank You” to all in District 4 who voted for change on March 5. Together, let’s roll up our sleeves and take back our district and city at our district runoff election on April 9.
As you know, I support our first responders wholeheartedly; as you and I shook hands, I heard your concerns about crime and gang activities invading our neighborhoods. I clearly see the need for police and firefighters to have proper equipment and numbers of personnel, and a restructuring of the pay grades to promote retention.
Secondly, I have seen firsthand the many neighborhood streets that need attention.
Third, Chattanooga must be friendlier to small businesses (which spark jobs creation) striking a balance with invitations to larger industries and with the nearby neighborhoods.
The new council must call for an audit of all departments for waste and rearrange the budget. Our taxes are for our collective good and they must be spent wisely. Will you help in our effort?
