Dr. King had a dream and unfortunately he was not able to see it come to fruition. I also have a dream, but it’s centered around my beloved Bronx.
My dream is for a government system that does not blatantly insult us. We have millionaires, real estate tycoons, and construction juggernauts, who are either in office or have their personnel take over for them when they leave office. We all know this is what happens, but no one wants to say it, not publicly. I am and I want the community to stand behind me.
Soon, the Bronx will be no different than the other boroughs who priced out their people in the name of progress. Yes, we are allowing it under the disguise of a free turkey once a year or a small bill which passes that puts a bandage on larger issues that plague us all.
We have reached such a disgusting level of political plait, I would like for you to be the first to know that I have decided to run for City Council.
What you should know and how you can help me soon are the following:
– I pledge a 50% pay decrease if elected to allocate the funds for more staff members.
– I will hold biweekly meet & greets with community members. (My goal is weekly)
– I will ask for $1 from all my friends, family, and individuals who want to see change, not only in the Bronx but also in America.
