My plan is to review what we have currently done, analyze its effectiveness, hold citizens accountable according to the laws and ordinances of the city, and then work with citizens, developers and non-profits to see how we could use to improve the quality of life in Hopkinsville.
To address the housing shortage, I will identify what the developers' and citizens need to build and acquire housing and collaborate with non-profits such as Habitat for Humanity and Neighborhood Assistance Corportation of America.
I would extend an invitation for collaboration, then share about the important part they play in helping our community, and together we develop a plan for economic mobility.
I plan to establish a homeless coalition, that will identify, acknowledge, and create a strategic plan to address homelessness. We will never prevent or stop homelessness; however, we can come together as a community, collaborate, and pool our resources together to mitigate the problem.
We cannot bridge a divide until we acknowledge the part, we play in creating the divide. I would work to ensure that all ward's concerns are served with the same attentiveness and quality, by monitoring the service we provide. The standard of service must be the same across the entire city.
Through Community Development Services the City of Hopkinsville has been collaborating with the Walker Collaborative for many years to revitalize downtown, yet we are still revitalizing. First, I need to analyze the effectiveness of the current plan and from that point initiate changes.
Youth Development. ... We must invest time and money into our youth.
