This Economic Revolution is dedicated to Crispus Attucks, the First Blood of  the American Revolution.

I have dedicated my life to being a voice for the voiceless—for the people and animals whose needs are often ignored by those in power. I am running for mayor because I can and will be the people’s voice in the city of Los Angeles.

More than ever, Los Angeles needs a mayor who does not fear upsetting the status quo—someone who will not hesitate nor be afraid to take on the devastating influence of corporate greed. We must bridge the gap between the rich and the poor, and bolster the prosperity of the middle and lower classes.

By implementing my platform, Workers Cooperatives, we will not only create jobs in our city, but we will also create WEALTH. Poverty is man-made—not an act of Mother Nature. Together, we can eradicate extreme poverty in Los Angeles by 2035.

My vision is to create the safest and most livable city in the world. This can happen. We can make it happen. We are blessed with an extraordinarily diverse, tolerant and motivated population with incredible, untapped potential. Together, we can tackle and overcome the big challenges created by greed; we can enhance job creation and retention, and we can improve our way of living.

I will be your voice. I will be your true and authentic servant.

I need your support, your vote, and more importantly, your prayers.

 “Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.” – Thomas Paine

“I am now convinced that the simplest solution to poverty is to abolish it directly by a new widely discussed measure: the guaranteed income.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.

“There shall be paid to every person, when arrived at the age of twenty-one years, the sum… as a compensation in part, for the loss of his or her natural inheritance, by the introduction of the system of landed property…to every person, rich or poor…because it is in lieu of the natural inheritance, which, as a right, belongs to every man, over and above the property he may have created, or inherited from those who did” — Thomas Paine
