We need a city that makes citizens strong and secure.

You can talk all you want about the need for more businesses. But what is needed more than that are citizens who can afford to buy from businesses. When citizens have the money to purchase what they need businesses will have the sales they need.

You cannot invigorate Flint by cutting taxes for businesses and raising taxes for citizens. That’s putting the cart before the horse, something that is very difficult to control and usually overturned. Right now Flint is driving citizens away, businesses cannot survive without customers. Businesses need those customers, but will not get them until the citizens of Flint can afford to make purchases at those businesses. Right now there are too few citizens and they have too little income for businesses to grow.

Let’s put the horse at the front of the cart.
