It's Time for a Political Renaissance
Hi, I'm Mike Smith, US Army Veteran, volunteer chaplain, and your candidate for the Green Party in District 16 for City Council. I'm a member of my neighborhood Land Use Committee, neighborhood Congress Working Class Task Force, and also the Working Class Land Use Committee.
On the Working Class Task Force, I've seen struggles of the working class, how the working class are walked on. I've seen the forces of gentrification, how it's about profit over people.
Unfettered gentrification will not only displace, it will decimate the working class that built this area up into the wonder place that it is today.
It's time to remind the government who they work for. Government was made for man, not man for government.
It's time to stand up and fight for our schools. The tragedy of Unigov was that it left behind the school system, creating an IPS destined to fail. And this was done for two reasons: racism and classism. It's time to right the wrongs of the past.
I've been here over 12 years. I can promise you one thing- the powers that be, can't bully me.
It's time for a political renaissance, because the status quo has failed us time and time again.
