With your support and your vote, we can develop the city of Newburgh without the displacement of the city of Newburgh people. When there’s strength in numbers it’s more power to the people. That’s how we ensure the city’s budget reflects our values.
GETTING MORE COMMUNITIES INVOLVED IN SHAPING THE FUTURE OF NEWBURGH IS THE MOST IMPORTANT INGREDIENT IN MAKING THE GOVERNMENT WORK FOR US (IMPROVING YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE). THROUGH CIVIC ENGAGEMENT, BY WORKING TOGETHER, THE PEOPLE OF NEWBURGH CAN UNIFY BEHIND THE PREMISE THAT THE CITY’S DEVELOPMENT IS DONE IN A WAY THAT BENEFITS EVERYONE AND DOESN’T RESULT IN THE DISPLACEMENT OF ANY INDIVIDUALS OR COMMUNITIES. CREATING A CITY THAT IS EQUITABLE, JUST, AND REFLECTIVE OF THE NEEDS AND ASPIRATIONS OF ITS DIVERSE NEIGHBORHOODS.
WHEN WE ACTIVELY PARTICIPATE IN THE ELECTORAL PROCESS AND APPLY POSITIVE PRESSURE TO ELECTED OFFICIALS WE HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE TO OUR VALUES AND PRIORITIES. THE POWER OF COLLECTIVE ACTION AND THE IMPORTANCE OF OUR NEIGHBOR’S ENGAGEMENT IN SHAPING THE CITY’S BUDGET AND PRIORITIES CAN HELP ENSURE THAT CITY RESOURCES ARE ALLOCATED IN A WAY THAT DOESN’T REFLECT THE INTERESTS OF POWERFUL INDIVIDUALS OR ORGANIZATIONS.
We are hopeful and energized about building a better future
Peace, stability, and prosperity are freedoms worth upholding and promoting. These freedoms we seek to make secure for every individual:
“The first is freedom of speech and expression - everywhere in the world. The second is the freedom of every person to worship God in their way - everywhere in the world. The third is freedom from want - which, translated into world terms, means economic understandings which will secure every nation a healthy peacetime life for its inhabitants-everywhere in the world. The fourth is freedom from fear - which, translated into world terms, means a worldwide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor - anywhere in the world.” - President Franklin D. Roosevelt
