Our community needs a leadership that is not committed to the owners, with the corrupt machine that accepts campaign financing from the real estate corporations. A leadership that fights against abuses, discrimination and exclusion, lack of jobs, closing businesses and job losses, lack of resources for public schools and improving the quality of life of the elderly.
