The greatest.problem we face. Eighty percent (80%) of our crime is related to drugs. People using. People selling. People stealing. Gangs exist and recruit Toledo's youth. Human trafficking. All exist because of Opioid addiction.
I will work to reduce Opioid addiction by:
Rather than spending taxpayer money on bigger jails to house drug offenders, let's work to eliminate the problem. This would be a better way to spend taxpayer money.
After hours club
We do not need after hours club's in our district. They only lead to shooting and violence. I support police action to close them. Zoning need to be changed to prevent them in the First Place. .

Stop the Swamp
Once again, there is a movement to fill our recreational water and make it a swamp. i do support wetlands, but not at the sake of recreational water. We have one of the world;s greatest resources- lake Erie. Fishing, boating and other recreation take place. The view is great. I understand the need to dredge for shipping. Just because it is cheaper to create a swamp doesn't mean we should. Dredging materials need to be placed elsewhere. Maybe another man made island out in the lake. Maybe take the material upstream where it came from. While AI don't have the answers, i am open to idea. Creating a swamp is just not a good idea..
INCENTIVIZE THE INNER CITY
Downtown development with the Mud Hens, Walleye, and Promedica is in improving. The outer belt of the City is in fine shape. There is what I call "a circle of woe" between downtown and the outlying parts of the city. We need to incentivize its' redevelopment.
