I would first like to thank the five individuals on the editorial board for taking an hour out of their busy day last week to meet with me. Thank you for your consideration.
Also, I would like to sincerely thank the people of the 1st District for making this campaign a very exciting and fulfilling one. Hearing your stories and your struggles motivates me to fight even harder for what our district needs.
Looking at the condition of our district's streets and parks as compared to the rest of the city, it's impossible to deny that the 1st District has been left behind.
My first priority as your representative on council would be to make sure that it's impossible for the Urban County Government to continue ignoring the needs oof ur district.
I will fight every day to return the dollars that we send to city hall back into our district to improve our infrastructure, parks and our neighborhoods.
I will fight to make sure new jobs in our city are available to those who need them most, and for those jobs to pay a livable wage. I will fight to put the 1st District first.
I'm Jim Burton, and I respectfully ask for your vote on Tuesday. Nov. 3
