Sometimes I wonder if politics is worth it, but it is giving a voice to people who don’t have a voice themselves

“I am a councilman for the city of Prichard. I grew up in Mobile, but want to increase the quality of life for people in Prichard because I live there and have investments there now. I believe I have made a difference. If I can’t, I am not going to proceed. I don’t have to be voted out, I will take myself out. This is not something you do for a living, but it consumes so much of your time. Sometimes I wonder if politics is worth it, but it is worth it because I am giving a voice to people who don’t have a voice for themselves. Sometimes we forget about the people who are less fortunate and struggling. Somebody has to put milk on the shelf, or pick up the garbage. We have to appreciate the people who do the dirty jobs and don’t have doctor salaries. We get wrapped up in ourselves and don’t think about what others go through each day.”

“Mobile County is growing and we have to find a way to protect and expand our transportation routes. We need a county transportation authority that takes care of all of Mobile County. Prichard and the other municipalities have put some of their responsibilities on Mobile. That isn’t fair to Mobile. Let’s change the system. I want to know what it would cost to maintain the transit system to Prichard.”

“How do you get away from politics?”

“I have a wife, three kids, and two dogs. I killed the goldfish and the plants, not intentionally. My dogs and kids are still living and my wife is hanging in there. I want to make this world a better place for them, starting with the man in the mirror. We want our kids to be all that they can be, but it is up to us to prepare the future for them.”
