As a lifelong resident who has worked tirelessly for this community for years, I know Back to Basics has a special meaning to our neighborhoods. For too long, City Hall has overlooked the basic needs of the citizens in District 4 — we see it in the form of litter, dilapidated housing, and unpaved roads. We must more effectively direct our taxpayer dollars to address these issues so that we may promote a safe, growing, and inclusive community. By drawing our focus to every neighborhood’s basic needs, and infrastructure, we can build a proper foundation for progress. That is why I am fighting to modernize services for all the residents of District 4, so that we can attain the prosperity that all of South Pittsburgh deserves. I hope you will join me in getting us Back to Basics.
