'"Vote for Shelia - Experience, Leadership, Innovation for a Better Durham"'
I believe we need more than just living wages, not just good jobs but career-developing jobs, and quality future-oriented job training programs that provide a pathway to building generational wealth. Along with supporting our educational partners, we have to focus on our local economy, because without it our residents can't buy food, can't pay for housing, and can't supply their families with other basic needs like health care and transportation. I fully support our local business owners, who are working hard to contribute to our local economy, and I plan to work closely with our job training partners so that our residents are prepared for the future. When we provide a pathway to jobs, we also provide a pathway to housing. I've created a plan called The 60th. It's a process that we can use to better connect jobs to housing for our residents.
