#IfIWasTheMayor Abby Wilson

If I was the Mayor I would make sure that every child in my city would have a good education. With the best quality supplies, instruments, and PE equipment. I would make sure that the schools are also kept clean and renovated. I would make sure all of the roads are safe and the signs are clear so there would be little to no accidents. I would make sure that the hospitals are up to date with the best equipment to help look after the patients. I would try my best to keep the city safe. I would treat everyone nicely and with respect. Finally I would want fire and police departments to have the best tools to keep the city safe. That is what I would do if I was the Mayor.

    If I were mayor, my focus right now would be on a few things: 1. Ending the systematic police abuse and reforming criminal justice. 2. I would put a larger focus on treating drug addiction and ending the War on Drugs. And 3. Ending income inequality, which keeps people at odds. Let’s make opportunities available for everyone.
