When my trash can broke, it took several phone calls and six months before the city delivered me this replacement trash can.
But I’m sure everyone of you could probably tell me a story just like it because that’s the standard level of service we get from our government here in Richmond.
We can’t get trash cans. We can’t get storm drains cleaned out. We can’t get light bulbs replaced in broken street lights. The list goes on and on and on.
Look I care about Richmond. And I personally believe that if you care about something and you see it broken then you should step up and do something about it.
So I’m running for mayor because I am fed up with the broken promises and the misplaced priorities of our elected leaders.
I fought with them for two years as they spent over a million dollars and all their time on a marketing campaign for an arena, while us normal residents of Richmond couldn’t get basic things like trash cans.
Enough is enough.
I believe that we deserve better here in Richmond, and we can get it as long as we make the service of our people a top priority.
