POSSIBILITIES


Park Improvements

Parks and greenspaces offer a variety of social, economic, and environmental benefits. A focus on the improvement of the beauty we have in the Gulf Coast means an improvement in the quality of life for everybody in the community.


Mental Health Resources for Underserved Communities

Everybody in our community needs access to mental health resources. By linking underserved communities to existing resources we can shrink the gap, providing more resources to more members of the community.


Affordable Housing

In order to ensure affordable housing options as our city grows, new developments need to offer affordable housing options with rent-capped units for lower-income tenants. Safe and secure housing should be available to everyone.


Livable Minimum Wage

All Mobilians need access to a wage that is livable in the city. A living wage for a single adult with no children in Mobile County is $14.37 1. Our current minimum wage of $7.25 isn't making ends meet for Mobilians.


Road and Drainage Infrastructure

District 5, like much of Mobile, is prone to flood damage. Investing in road and drainage infrastructure is an investment in saving lives in our community.


Recycling

Protecting and celebrating our diverse ecosytem is key to our success as a city. A city-wide program that offers curbside recycling to all households is a first step in developing more sustainable options in Mobile.
