Why I'm Running for Mayor
First, I am not a political insider. I have never worked in politics before. I have never run for office before. I am politically independent and I won’t attach labels to my name (no D’s or R’s). I’m not a millionaire, I’m not wealthy – I work a 9 to 5.
As an Atlanta native, it saddens me to see the current state of the city. I can't stand by idly anymore, watching as our citizens needlessly suffer, while our elected officials continue to do nothing.
The most urgent need is to reign in the crime. The near daily news of deadly shootings in the city is absolutely unacceptable. There is an easy solution, but our elected officials fail to act. Behind every deadly shooting is nothing but pain and anguish – with grieving mothers and orphaned children left in the wake of destruction. Unfortunately, some of the victims have been children themselves. The saddest part of all – these deadly crimes are preventable, they don’t have to happen. I will fix this.
I promise to be only accountable to the citizens of Atlanta. I don’t have a political party to appease and pander to and I don’t have donors to appease (I am not taking campaign contributions). I don’t have political cronies, groupies, or an entourage to take care of. It's just me.
I can’t effect change by staying silent. I am running for Mayor to make Atlanta a better city for my son - it starts now and I won’t give up on Atlanta.
