Community Activist, a minister, a government manager at the local level - where gov't must work! Raised in a steel town where plant closed. Moved to a farm, with 14 brothers & sister raised our food and worked with the migrants. All 14 kids got college educated to rise to better jobs. Believe everyone should have a chance at American dream. Home owner,active in politics to elect good leadership.
Have been on executive committe of both parties! Believe in hard work, education, opening businesses. If you a good at something, execellence is it's own reward. Open a business & get paid, hire others. Belive in economic development, especially in the African American community. All people need opportunity, training, and businesses.
I have been with Republicans of Color - ROC to share Capitalism to stimulus economic development like Jack Kemp's Empowerment Zones!
Believe the stimulus would have worked, if banks didn't hoard the monies, And Republican governor, & County executives would have spent the monies on jobs & projects rather than sitting on it! But the flood waters of recovery are coming, if will brake the Republican dam. Democracy can work - if greed doesn't rule!
