To my fellow citizens of Memphis, I am honored to announce that I am a candidate for Mayor of Memphis! I am running for mayor because I have a vision that together, the citizens will make our city a great place to live, work, raise our families, educate our children, and live in safe communities.

As Mayor of Memphis, I will hold all city employees accountable and responsible for performing their professional duties. In addition, I will hold all department/division leaders accountable for providing effective strategies to all employees under their supervision and leadership. During my first ninety days as Mayor of Memphis, I will develop comprehensive policies, procedures, accountability plans, safety requirement standards, that will command trust among our citizens Improving territorial relationships and significantly decreasing crime.

In addition, I will collaborate collectively in partnership with the County Mayor, community leaders, community organizations, faith-based leaders, citizens, and administrators in our educational systems. We will ensure students in Pre-K/K-12 continue to have safe schools with comprehensive curriculum programs.

As Mayor of Memphis, my top priority is to address public safety, reduce the crime rate and adjudicate the revolving door currently in our justice system. I will also encourage funding community-based initiatives that address the root causes of crime, such as poverty, addiction, mental health, and early childhood education reform; Pre-K/Early Childhood Education will be an emphasis. It is imperative that we also expand opportunities for higher education, vocational training, expand affordability access to health care systems, support public health measures that promote healthy lifestyles, and wellness programs.

I want to make our city a leader in innovation, sustainability, and social justice to be a model for the rest of America. I am confident that together, we can achieve these goals and more; that’s why I am asking for your vote and support.
