If there is one thing people seem to be afraid of it's: How is an outsider with no political experience going to be able to handle the multi-billion dollar sewer system problem?
The more I think about it, the more I think I might be able to handle it better than career politicians.
Everything in my life is about innovation and using the modern technologies to solve problems. I am a tech entrepreneur.
In case you think I don't understand the complexity of this issue let me spell out the problem.
In a nutshell, Philadelphia is trying to slow down the water during storms using innovative green initiatives. I love this idea!
If you think this is pie-in-the-sky dreaming you should know that the EPA is funding research on this topic.

I think we need to be open to all the possible ideas.
Here's the thing about career politicians: They will tell you 5 reasons why something isn't possible. They are slow moving, conservative people. We need innovation and new ideas. That's what I bring to this race.
Innovative solutions to this problem could make Akron one of the coolest, most desirable cities to live in anywhere in the U.S.A.
We have an option here: We can just dig big old holes in the ground like everybody else. Or we can use this time in our history to help make Akron innovative and leading the country in thought and action.
We can use this "problem" to help make us great.
