What major issue would you like addressed
|Education. Every child in the city of Boston deserves a high quality education. We need quality schools!
|Education. I moved from Cambridge — which had better quality schools — so I can be more politically active in education and civic engagement in the African American community here in Boston.
|Not to offend my colleagues, but we need many more African American men in the school system as teachers, guidance counselors, psychologists and social workers from K to 12. Second: Don’t close the schools!
|It would be improving, overhauling and upgrading our Boston Public School system, because the inferior education that our children are receiving puts them in a caste system where they’re unable to compete. Second: Economic development for minority communities. Address the lack of opportunities for the minority business community to create jobs for minorities.

|The Boston City Council should require banks like Bank of America to institute principle reduction policies so that people can stay in their homes and at the same time create jobs by affording to upgrade their homes and eliminate blight.

|Economic development is very important. If people don’t have jobs, you don’t get tax revenues. If you don’t have tax revenue you can’t improve your schools, fix the streets, etc. If men don’t have jobs they can’t take care of their families.
