Engaging LEDA, the health unit, and community development to create a process for business owners in these arenas to follow in order to make these options more easily accessible. We must also utilize all means of communication in order to be certain the information about healthcare, housing, and health are easily available to everyone.

As a full-time council representative, I will provide assistance to constituents with healthcare, housing, or nutritional issues. Some local agencies can assist with these issues, but much of the assistance with these issues comes from state and federal programs. I will be a clearinghouse of information to assist my constituents. Your question omits a vital element of service necessary to any community. That is, the elderly and disabled always need assistance. As a full-time ambassador for all my constituents, I will learn the system, and fully utilize all services — whether local, state, or federal — that are available to those who need assistance.

As a young businessman I will attempt to enter a public partnership with a healthcare facility to bring some type of urgent care facility to north Lafayette. By placing adjudicated property with a land bank and forcing new development that will help our housing issue.

Community services access will occur through at least three paths: (1) community organizing and development (2) collaboration in service delivery, and (3) the implementation of community-based programs, which I will engage and work with the city community development director to implement.
