  • That's how I know we can win.
  • All we have to do is vote. That's it. Vote one time and everything changes.

    • You MUST vote then, when they want you to forget.

Please consider voting for me for mayor of Akron in the Democratic Mayoral Primary in May of 2023 and we will end the stranglehold of corporate interests getting ridiculously rich while the people of Akron suffer.
