Sheldon NeeleyFor Flint Mayor
After 4 years of a water crisis, under-resourced schools, and lack of job opportunities, Flint needs a mayor that we can hold accountable. On Tuesday, November 5th, Flint residents have the power to elect a leader who is committed to restoring trust, transparency, and truth to the Flint mayor’s office. On November 5th, be sure to cast your vote for Sheldon Neeley.
Representative Sheldon Neeley (D) has lived in Flint his whole life, and knows his community. He has served on the Flint City Council and is currently serving his third term in the Michigan House of Representatives, where his progressive leadership has:
- Persistently sought accountability for those responsible for the water crisis
- Helped establish the Flint Promise, which provides free college or greatly reduced tuition to students graduating Flint high schools
- Pushed to open the Flint Development Literacy Lab to teach kids and adults literacy skills
- Introduced legislation that would automatically erase criminal records for those convicted of certain marijuana-related crimes, and has hosted Expungement Fairs over the years to inform affected individuals of their rights and streamline the expungement process
We’re supporting Sheldon Neeley for mayor because we need someone we can count on, and we believe he’s the candidate that is willing to listen to the people of Flint.
If elected, Sheldon Neeley will implement his 5-point plan:
Economics and Education
1. Develop a financial plan that will assist with the water rates problem and provide better resources for residents
2. Ensure that all children receive a high-quality education by advocating against school closures and increase class sizes
Residential and Safety
3. Enact common-sense steps to end gun violence and reform the criminal justice system
4. Build trust between law enforcement and communities of color
5. Work with partners and the government to provide better services for residents.
