MAKING OUR COMMUNITIES SAFER
My top priority is keeping our children and families safe. That’s why I plan to work tirelessly with community members and other stakeholders to improve public safety: making our neighborhoods safer and creating a better future for our children.
COMMUNITY, CONSTITUENT, AND CORE SERVICES
Throughout this campaign season, we’ve heard a lot of complaints about constituent services going neglected. Calls from residents go unreturned, concerns are slow walked and unaddressed issues get worse.
My campaign has put forward a number of big, new ideas about what City Council can and should be doing to help New Orleanians whether the growing crises of homelessness, housing affordability, and environment, but getting the basics right is just as important.
RECOVERING FROM THE PANDEMIC
COVID-19 has revealed many disparities in access to health care, education, and economic opportunity. These problems aren’t new, but they have been further complicated by the pandemic. Timolynn (I) will bring the bold leadership we need to implement equitable solutions and ensure our recovery includes everyone.
DEVELOPING AN ECONOMY THAT EMPOWERS EVERYONE
Economic development is more than just “cranes in the air.” It is about fostering an environment that promotes investment and encourages smart growth and development in all areas of the city. Efforts to bring business and industry to the district will not succeed until we prioritize developing our human capital.
CREATING AN EQUITABLE COMMUNITY
The city prospers when everyone prospers. In order to truly thrive, New Orleans must model addressing inequity in our communities.
ADVOCATING FOR HOUSING AND UTILITY AFFORDABILITY
In order for our city to grow and thrive, it must provide quality and attainable rental and homeownership opportunities for people at every income level. Quality affordable housing will create safe, complete, and thriving communities throughout our city.
