  1. People of color must begin to step up in local elections…run for office, support candidates you believe in with your time AND/or money as you are able and VOTE! Vote for everything. Judges, city council, school board, district attorney, dog catcher…these are the elections that have the most impact on our lives –even more so than who is president.

  2. I am from SouthPark and as a local music artist here ppl call on us to help promote whatever their doing. So now our musical icon Mr. Scarface is running for a city position in the area HE grew up We should put our efforts into him because no one knows what our communities real struggles are if you never lived here. I believe Brad knows what our communities lack and what’s needed and willing to fight for our ppl to be better and have more that wasn’t given from others before.. Listen to his music! His stories! They dictate the real issues in our community So I say #VoteForBradJordan ~ Ms. Houston Approved
