To move ahead we must remember our past. All of us owe a debt of gratitude to the Jackson family. Commissioner Jackson was a good man and I respect his efforts to improve our community. It is why my first order of business will be to propose changing the name of Fort Braden Park to the Jimbo Jackson Park. We should never forget his commitment to our community. In a similar fashion, I will address the crime in our community and will do so by supporting Sheriff Walt McNeil and his “All-In Initiative”. This initiative means joining with the City of Tallahassee, schools, universities, and social service agencies to reduce crime. It’s an “all hands-on deck approach” and if elected, I will give Sheriff McNeil my full support.
We have been told, for too long,
to “be patient”, or “your time is coming”.
We have been told, for too long, to “be patient”, or “your time is coming”. Yet, our children walk to school on flooded streets and emergency services are slow to reach us. Our septic systems are failing, and, in many areas, we do not even have waste services picking up our trash. It is not right, and I intend to change it. I know better is possible. If you want to see change, if you want to see improvements, if you want someone who is genuine— stand with me and vote Manny Joanos on August 23. This time is our time! Together we can make a difference, and together we can bring needed County resources into our District.
