I don't know what my District 4 neighbors are doing. I don't know very many of them. We all just kind of keep to ourselves. Maybe because I was raised not to talk to strangers, or maybe because up until a few months ago the only thing listed under "Paradise Hills" was a crime tracker, the truth is that our neighborhood is in dire need of some major improvements, and some major beautification. That's why I'm so excited about the upcoming election for District 4 Council member. I actually kind of forgot about the fact that the previous one got in trouble.. I never really took an interest in the council members until I learned more about them via "Melissa and Joey". That's right, Council woman Mel Burke! I didn't really know what they did, or why I was voting for them. This time I'm excited, and you should be too! The Council Members represent your 'hood, your stoops, your streets, your corners, your roads. They speak up for you, and I look forward to the next steps after we elect our new Council member! I hope they're listening, because they're going to be hearing a lot from me!
Right before Jerry Sanders' term was over, I sent an email requesting a change on our streets, speed bumps, street lights, etc. No one ever replied. What message does this send your residents and citizens? If you want us to vote for you, you have to vouch for us.
It's time to get involved. It's GO TIME!
