Candidate Statement

The Chicago that I grew up in has taken on a gloom, brought about by terrible policies forced upon us by unpatriotic Democrats. These types of politicians have systematically destroyed all that was once valued and of the best quality. Whether it be merchandise or our once worldwide envied public schools.

With the induction of the veiled and failed “war on poverty” plan by President Lyndon Baines Johnson, young black women saw nothing wrong with having babies out of wedlock. They did not think about how the child felt, about not having a father in the home. As a result, crime rose to new levels and a welfare society was born and reborn.

With the change in educational history, reading, writing and arithmetic gradually disappeared in many inner city public schools. As a result, grammar, diction and cursive writing were replaced with absence from schools, violence and a class of Black children who grew up to be adults physically, but not intellectually or emotionally.

When a man or woman cannot read, how can they learn skills, how can they read for enjoyment and learning, exploring our world? Democrats did not and do not want everyone to be on the same intellectual plane as they themselves are.

Racism has replaced curse words. Used and dished out in “mantra” form, Black men and women have used the word “racism” to eliminate any blame or form of responsibility for their own actions and inaction.

I’m here to change that and change I will as long as I live. Thank you. 

Candidate Q&A

Why are you running?

I'm running for office to help return Chicago and the state of Illinois back to orderly living through Law enforcement; adhere to rules already in existence.  When present day laws are being rigidly enforced there isn't much need for new lawyers which won't be adhered to as well under democratic rule.  Due to the lethal and unwise policies of the Democrats, much of our education system has been depleted and this is tragic. 

Children have been robbed of the education that older Americans fought for and enjoyed, such as American and World History, Geography, the Sciences and some Mathematics.  Even cursive writing has been eliminated in some public schools. America is under attack by Americans. 

Crime is encouraged, allowing those who break the law, to walk the streets and continue to victimize law abiding citizens. We have open borders which welcome in criminals and drugs.  Our Constitution is under attack and this invaluable document has kept Americans free from outside forces since its inception, but now our own America people have turned (blindly) against the greatest nation the world has witnessed.

What does this office do well, and what needs fixing?

The office of county commissioner does offer positive options - such as bringing Bills to the table, state your reasons for wanting to keep/eliminate an issue.  i.e. higher taxes, better text books for schools, etc.  I mean by this, the designated commissioner can suggest new rules/exempt new or dates laws and suggest a vote to keep or not to apply.

What is the most pressing issue facing your constituents and how do you plan on addressing it?

Enforce vagrancy laws so that we (Cook County) does not resemble Los Angeles or San Francisco. Bring the Trades back to the trade high schools and institutions in which they were originally taught.

What specific steps would you take to ensure your office is accessible and responsive to your constituents?

Vote to fund and refund law enforcement officers; send out a monthly newsletter to constituents about the latest happenings in the world which affect America.  Have a yearly event in which citizens of my district can meet and office what needs improvement in the community and what is working out well.
