I decided to run for Alderman because I love St. Louis and I want to help it be the best city it can be. I can see the potential this city has struggling to break free every day I go outside. It’s incredibly disheartening to watch our own local government stifle growth in order to keep the status quo. We need real change, not promises, not excuses. We need to decide as a community that action must be taken. The bureaucrats in office now have no desire to help in any meaningful way, because to help means they must take risks, and risks are not things politicians enjoy taking. I hope you’ll read through my issues list and see if you share any positions with me.
St. Louis is a powerhouse of a city just waiting for the right conditions to break out of its shell. The three major obstacles I see that must be overcome are:
1) Improve K-12 public education by enabling school choice through a voucher system.
2) Attract and keep more businesses by reducing or eliminating burdensome regulations and taxes.
3) Reduce crime and urban decay by legalizing all drugs at the city level and treating drug addiction as a health issue, not a criminal issue.
If you agree, please don’t let the party I belong to prevent you from voting your conscience. Please, help me help our city.
