Rally against Jackson County Tax Assessment Hike

paul

I called on Frank White to freeze the tax rates, and met with Brandon Ellington today on a course of action for us. This needs to be dealt with and a plan must be implemented to make sure that this never happens again. This attempt to remove homeowners from their homes will not stand.

Let’s Talk Community

I presented to a packed house at the Latino Foundation for the Arts. I talked about my experiences at the border and answered questions and concerns. We are in dangerous times, and we must end the camps.

Signed the Green New Deal

It was an honor to meet and speak with Andres Bernal, scholar and advisor to AOC! I also signed a pledge to never take fossil fuel donations and to support the Green New Deal. Climate change is a crisis, but it’s a crisis we can take care of. That’s why I am such a fervent supporter of the GND. It’s time to make history.

Testified in support of Blue Springs NDA for LGBTQIA folks, passed

On August 5th I testified alongside students from Blue Springs at the Blue Springs City Council meeting to endorse the Fair Housing Amendment to protect our LGBTQ community. Last night, the Council voted to pass the Amendment unanimously! Congratulations to all the students who worked so hard on this, and to Scott Casey!
