Our primary focus will be on Neighborhoods, Jobs and Youth. Our Neighborhoods are the arteries of our city. I want to empower the citizens in our neighborhoods to be the voices of development and growth in our great neighborhoods. When our citizens are involved and empowered our neighborhoods are safer and more vibrant. I believe that some of our best ideas have come from our neighbors and I will work to ensure that they are empowered. In order for us to have a strong city all of our neighborhoods must be strong.
Jobs are essential in building a vibrant city and stable neighborhoods. I will work closely with all levels of government, business and non- profit leaders to ensure that we our working overtime to bring good paying jobs to the City of Rochester. To combat poverty and empower our citizens we must ensure that they have access to good paying jobs.
Our Youth are not only our future but they are also our present. Our City and Our Future will rest on the success of our youth. I want to ensure that every single child in Rochester has access to early childhood development programs. I want to make sure that every child in Rochester is involved in some type of extra -curricular activity that will aid them in their development. All youth should have a job if they desire one and I will work that we build public-private partnerships that ensure our students are employed if they desire a part time job. I know what youth development programs did for me and I want our youth to have access to the same opportunities I had.
