We need real change. Violent crime up 9%. We have lost hundreds of police officers because of low pay and the pension fund. The un-sheltered homeless is up 47%. We must make a change in our elected city government representative. We need to pay our police fairly. We need beat patrols on foot in neighborhoods like Downtown, West End, Uptown, lower Greenville and Deep Ellum. We need to move forward on approved trails, parks and bike lanes. We need an effective approach to deal with the panhandlers and help the homeless. We need to upgrade pedestrian infrastructure and create new sidewalk codes. We need to grow our nightlife not hinder it. Elect Kim Welch and he will work on these things relentlessly. Vote for Kim and you send a message to City Hall that you want these things to happen.
