Our Community Deserves Paychecks That Can Pay The Bills

  1. Mutual Aid relief: food access and funds for those that live in government classified “food deserts”.

    What does this mean?

    You deserve access to fresh food no matter where you live.

  2. Free and accessible PPE for all, such as masks, gloves, hand sanitizer, etc.
  3. Work with State and Local authorities to ensure the COVID vaccine reaches underserved communities through different ways such as mobile vaccination stations.
  4. Make broadband (internet) a necessity and provide it in underserved areas where it is unavailable or unaffordable; connect people with programs that offer it as a tool to further civic engagement, job training, education, and communication.

    What does this mean?

    Internet is available for all no matter your income.

  5. Raise the Real Estate transfer tax from 0.1% to 4% and redistribute those tax gains to underserved communities in helping provide rental, utility, and other forms of relief.
  6. Make Neighborhood Planning Unit (NPU) meetings more accessible by having recordings available to the public and having announcements of when and where meetings take place in public locations of interest (libraries, police stations, rec centers, etc).
    • Explain the role of NPU meetings to the public to emphasize the importance of community involvement, including neighborhood associations.
    • Establish community clean ups and educate people on the importance of keeping the community clean.
  7. Make voting accessible to citizens of the 4th district by providing the proper tools (child care, up to date voter registration, transportation, etc.) to make sure they are able to vote.
  8. Create a District 4 Stipend program.

    What does this mean?

    The cost of living isn’t going down and we need to try to help people keep up with it.
