Point of Order: Let us not forget that there is a Republican Primary on May 3, 2005. We have been unable to find anyone associated with the Republican Party who knows the individual who qualified as a Republican Mayoral candidate to run against Rick in the primary. That fact is not as important as the fact that we must double our efforts to get our message to the people, to raise funds, and to get our voters to the polls on May 3, 2005.

Leadership Matters: As I go door to door around town talking to citizens, I don’t get very deep into the discussion before the subject of crime comes up. It remains foremost in the minds of Jacksonians. Only confirming, my long held belief, that people are concerned with being safe, restoring order, and making Jackson the kind of city we can all be proud to call home. When elected, I will create an environment that makes reducing crime the top priority. I believe once we successfully resolve the issue of crime, most everything else will fall into place. Economic development growth, better academically performing schools, and many other quality of life issues will be efficiently and aggressively pursued. We will start with a “Zero Tolerance” crime plan. It is a model that I have long advocated and which has been successful in other cities around the country. It will take strong leadership, commitment, and courage from the Mayor’s office to implement the “Zero Tolerance” concept. I will provide that leadership, because as I have said throughout the campaign, and will continue to say. “LEADERSHIP MATTERS.”
