I will fight St. Louis City to pay reparations to the black community including a massive infusion of capital
for individuals to acquire and keep their homes, build businesses, and improve the quality of life.
I Have a History of Building! I have:
A history of building economic development in the black community

Black Community Control of the LRA
Platform Point #
Community Control of LRA & Return Housing to Black Community
The Land Reutilization Authority (LRA) is a landbank that owns 20,000 or more properties lost mostly by the black community. These abandoned properties litter the the black community of North St. Louis and make our streets look like a war zone. With thirty-percent of the population living off an average of $5 per day, the black community lost many of these properties because of low income, unemployment, redlining, predatory lending, and overall starvation of our community. The LRA must be community controlled and a large portion of the housing and land lost by the black community must be returned. This is part of the claim for Reparations owed to the black community.
Genuine Economic Development: Stop Gentrification
Platform Point #
Replace Gentrification with Genuine Economic Development
The black population makes nearly half of the population of our city, but is disproportionately impacted by overwhelming conditions of poverty, homelessness and police containment. The black community of North St. Louis has experienced centuries of economic exploitation, including slavery, zoning laws, redlining, the complete razing and displacement of entire communities, economic embargoes, predatory lending, and police violence. With nearly thirty-percent of the population living on an average of $5 a day, black people living on the North Side of St Louis struggling below the federal poverty line, reparations and economic justice for the black community must be the highest priority for our city’s agenda.
The Status Quo wants to allow people who live outside St. Louis City
to work in St. Louis City
Wealthy developers and bought politicians want to fill black neighborhoods with more police so that black neighborhoods can be made safe for white people and wealthy developers.
The Status Quo has reduced the number of Wards in
St. Louis City from 28 to 14.
The politicians who work for greedy developers have reduced the number of Wards in the City, making it more expensive to run. This means more candidates will be controlled by lobbyists and developers. It will make it easier for lobbyists and developers to buy-off Alderpersons.
The Status Quo has just implemented a system allowing voters to choose multiple candidates and to run for office without disclosing their political Party.
This is designed to break up black in St. Louis City. Choosing multiple candidates for each position is designed to dilute black votes while not declaring a Party affiliation is designed to help Republicans secretly run in and win majority black Wards.
