Results start at the top. Making District 5 a priority means putting Citizens, Families, Schools, Communities, and Small businesses first. Mr. Slocum is a leader with a hands on approach in representing District 5. As an advocate, he understands the importance of fighting for what is right and believes that there should be more action in accommodating individuals with disabilities, helping families become more aware and active in exercising best health and wellness practices, keeping citizens and residents safe by getting to the root causes including creating job opportunities through resourceful networks and consortium.
How is this done? We stand and work together to promote cleaner, safer, and stronger communities while supporting socially responsible programs, initiatives, and businesses. For example, when businesses experience growth and expansion, good jobs can be created at the local levels where residents and citizens are gainfully employed.
Training and developing skills also help improve the quality of customer service...attracting more repeat clientele that are willing to pay top dollars. The more success realized, the more businesses can redirect or reinvest into our communities and their employees; hence, building a stable workforce and environment. Morale and job satisfaction are also important factors. For instance, pay-scale increases for professionals such as teachers and public safety along with helping all Veterans transition from active duty to civilian life make a world of difference in and outside of our communities.
Though certain issues may require more attention than others, we must keep alert of the issues concerning human trafficking and homelessness in District 5. Human trafficking and homelessness won’t go away unless more is directly done to work with other legislative leaders, law enforcement agencies, communities and families. Mr. Slocum is compassionate about making sure that every citizen is treated with dignity and respect, and that the appropriate resources are available to help.
It’s important to working diligently with advocates, activists, homeowners, civic associations, unions, community leaders, and law enforcement agencies while determining what laws and policies to enact. Laws and policies must be fair and just to avoid any discriminatory practices while at the same time serve and protect the best interest of law abiding citizens of District 5. Thanks to the efforts of law enforcement agencies and partners, violent crimes in District 5 have been successfully lower and the focus for more outreach initiatives to help protect people of District 5 from adverse concerns such as domestic violence, safety in our schools, and property crimes can be redirected to building sustainable communities.
In addition to continuing our efforts in moving District 5 ahead, family and social services initiatives are critical to the vitality of our communities. We must determine the attributes and learn from the successes of our current progressive leaders so to better implement more viable case specific programs geared toward helping many people in need.
Creating clear and concise guidelines and policies help support individuals and families by offering viable solutions enabling them to transition from dependent to more livable and stable situations. When lives are transformed, the impact on our communities and businesses are realized as a result of more individuals improving their overall circumstances. When circumstances change for the better, lives are transformed allowing individuals and families to reciprocate back into their households, communities, businesses, and Districts.

Keeping our infrastructure in tune with technological advancements are excellent ways to help us effectively adapt and deal with unexpected changes. Change comes in many ways; and planning for the future may vary from individual to individual. In order to help create sustainability, our legislative efforts must influence positive change on behalf of the people of District 5 in various areas but not limited to personal growth, professional development, financial and retirement readiness.
Enacting legislation at the County level is serious business and involves a compassionate leader that advocates for the people of District 5. It also takes an effective leader to orchestrate the efforts in making a difference in helping to improve the quality of life for families, communities, schools, and businesses given a well prepared budget sufficiently supports these and other socially responsible initiatives. For example, small business development, entrepreneurship, financial literacy centers on major corners in communities, affordable housing and family services that build stronger households through foundations of healthy family values and principles. Many people have also expressed concerns about property taxes and including partnerships assisting families needing access to affordable and sustainable before and aftercare.
There are so many topics and discussions to cover, by rest assure that it’s our time to have an effective leader to take District 5 to the next level. Citizens and residents of District 5 have the power when united in numbers addressing interests, concerns, and taking action. As a Leader, Mr. Slocum encourages everyone to get involved, reach out for support, and take on a role when he or his volunteers tap you on the shoulder. Let’s be the change that makes a difference improving circumstances through participatory economics. This in turn increases opportunities and helps minimizes socioeconomic deprivation and disparities in and outside of our communities.
We're more than residents and citizens...we are District 5. We encourage collaboration, community involvement, advancement of careers, financial security, and job creation. Inspect to expect or another way of putting it is getting things done right. We give back to those that have given so much over the course of their lives, but now they need our help. More resources and budgetary line items should go toward helping our seniors live better quality of lives, equal pay, women and black owned businesses, protecting children and women from domestic violence, and childcare initiatives. Funding for research and finding better treatments or cures that are debilitating should also be at the top of our agenda. In addition, we must bridge the learning gap in the classrooms so that our students have a future to advance and become anything they put their minds. All students should be afforded the opportunity of a world class education despite circumstances.
For those preparing for higher learning, there should be legislation to help lift the burden and financial woes of attending school and taking on the heavy load of debt or inability to paying back loans. There is no doubt that financials matter; and with the help of enacted laws and policies that directly and indirectly impact change, legislative leadership must care and have a passion for results.
As a people of District 5, expect more, get involved and voice concerns that help shape the very laws impacting communities, families, schools, businesses, and development. This is a movement and every Prince Georgian has something invested here worth improving and protecting. Exciting times are ahead and a new era of opportunities await. Expect more and get things done with a leader that is about the people of District 5, where we put legislation out in front to work for the good of District 5. "It's Our Time" for results and its our time to thrive in District 5!
