We cannot afford to do what we have always done and expect different results. I believe that my jobs agenda is responsive to Little Rock’s challenges, and it sets a clear vision on job creation that voters want to see from their next mayor.
“I was born and raised in Little Rock, and believe wholeheartedly that the fundamentals are there for Little Rock to thrive – we just need the right leadership in City Hall. Little Rock needs fresh perspective and new strategies that are a clean break from business and politics as usual. We need leadership that is focused on uniting Little Rock and maximizing the ingenuity of our residents to reach its full potential.”
I don’t have to tell anyone in Little Rock that our schools are at a crossroads. Our schools are still under state control. Far too many parents have decided to either raise their families outside of Little Rock, send their children to charter schools, or pursue other costly private options because they have lost faith in Little Rock School District (LRSD). That’s why I’m releasing my Opportunity Agenda for the next generation of Little Rock.
Economic development, community policing and millennials were among the hot-button issues when the four candidates for Little Rock mayor introduced themselves and their platforms to the city Wednesday evening.
Over the last few months, I've had the honor of engaging with voters across the city. The message was clear: the next mayor must have a plan to unify and move Little Rock forward.
As a product of Little Rock public schools, I empathize with parents who want their schools back. These parents deserve a mayor who will fight to place their child's future back in the hands of communities that know them best.
