Local reparation will offer a leg up to the residents who age not given a fair chance. Opening opportunities that might have been far removed from their life. First starting with an official public apology. Also offering education, tax credits, and funds to make a difference. This will start the ball rolling to offer real equity so that true equality can be obtained in the city of Richmond.
It is especially important to aid the residents in a complete recovery. We must also help residents to be self-sufficient, sustain strong employment, and strong stable living arrangements. As Mayor, I will also work closely with organizations to help the residents that have been evicted find a safe and stable place to live. We will offer a deposit and rent payment for the first two months. For those who are on the brink of eviction, we will offer mediation before eviction and council on their behalf. Making sure you know your rights. We will also reach out to local churches to assist us with some general needs of our residents.
First, ask yourself why do we have crime? We have always had the answer to reduce the problem. We have lower crime by 40% before but we continue to hire and fire police chiefs for some reason that is not warranted.
Offering our communities a different option ( reparation, summer camp, Jobs) will assist in lowering crime. Community policing will reduce crime. Offering drug programs that are to help the addict stop using in a holistic way. Opening up new centers for the kids. Offering solid programs for the kids and holding the programs that are already being funded accountable. putting money back into the parks of the high-risk areas and adding green space to these areas. removing the projects and replace them with comprehensive homes that will be offered for ownership to the residents.
