I have made the decision to run because of the blight and lack of services to the residents of the 2nd Ward. I am a life-long resident of Flint and have been a resident of the 2nd Ward for 41 years. In the past year many residents in the 2nd Ward and the City of Flint have encouraged me to run for 2nd Ward Councilperson. After prayerful consideration and family discussions I have decided to accept this challenge.
Over the past several years the 2nd Ward has deteriorated with the presence of abandoned houses, streets in dire need repair/resurface, over grown vacant lots, gunshots heard all too frequently. I am committed to working with city administration and other councilpersons to make Flint a place the residents can be proud of and feel safe.
My work career has been spent in the helping professions in hospitals and the community health department as a registered nurse, nurse practitioner, social worker and psychologist. Being Actively Involved in Civic and Political Issues for many years, I have sought to help create effective change as a member of the Michigan Democratic Committee, Change .org, and MoveON.org. I have worked for local candidates in the past, and lastly Hilary Clinton’s Campaign. My family and I now feel that the time has come for me to offer myself as a servant in the public arena.
As an elected 2nd Ward council person, I will work toward “REBUILDING, RESTORING and REVITALIZING the Neighborhood and Parks. Also promoting Community Beautification, advocating to have Abandoned Houses Demolished, Streets Repaired /Resurfaced, Streets Cleaned, Vacant Lots Maintained, and work with law enforcement to provide Police Visibility and Safety.
