2014 Cleveland, OH

Campaign for Cuyahoga County Executive 

 LOVE       COMMITMENT       SACRIFICE 

The Nourishing of Flowers. RACISM: The Foundation of Man’s Inhumanity to Man. Understanding diversity creates exchange of commerce with those that you may not like or that may not like you.. everybody understands…..buying….and selling…..Increasing the quality of education fosters greater understanding of supporting businesses regardless of race. The Educated are less likely to discriminate they feel they know something and can do something positive and understand that it is better to work with people……You should get an EDUCATION FOR YOURSELF to live the life you want to live…

EDUCATION: An individual goes to school to get a degree works 10 years then they have to return to school to obtain another degree.  This is the sign of the times. Improving education….Improves employment and improves the individuals healthcare…and decreases the crime rate….Going back to the basics, beginning at pre-k to increase the child's ability …is to teach the child to write, if a child can write for a half hour or more….. the child can read for two hours or more…this can open the world for the child…

VETERANS, SENIORS AND FAMILIES: Respect and increase care of all veterans..who have put their lives on the line so we can enjoy our freedom…  remember they are the people who make sure we are safe. We should do all we can to support fatherhood for all children. Increase care and resources for seniors.

CULTURAL ARTS: Freedom of cultural expression. Create more opportunities for the arts for all who want to practice their discipline….

Leaders are there to make you flourish.........And the Flower Grows
