From Foung Hawj website: Making the East Side Stronger through Community Involvement
My top priorities are: Foreclosure Prevention: St. Paul’s East Side has one of the highest foreclosure rates in the metropolitan area. It is destroying families and neighborhoods. I will make sure that mortgage companies are doing everything to help homeowners keep their homes.
Job Development and Training Opportunities: I plan to create jobs by supporting small businesses, entrepreneurs and green initiatives. I will work with city leaders to market the East Side to attract businesses and make sure that companies hire locally.
Quality Education: I will fight hard to promote quality education for the East Side, and close the student achievement gap by holding the state to its commitment to our school.
Better Healthcare for Seniors: I will fight for more affordable healthcare for our elderly and make sure that they have adequate supports in their own homes.
Environmental and Green Initiatives: We are blessed to have beautiful parks and green spaces throughout the East Side. The Mississippi River is a national treasure in our backyard. I will support efforts to protect, improve, and expand our green spaces and natural resources.
