The Black Lives Matter Activist DeRay McKesson has released a proposal in which he intends to address urban planning and development issues if elected as Baltimore’s Mayor.
Few weeks ago, McKesson introduced a platform where he made known to the public his intention to improve the city that made him the man he is today. His platform is considered to be a vision for economic and racial justice.
“Equity is about making sure people get what they deserve,” he stated in an interview with The Atlantic. “The city has to work for everybody.”
In McKesson’s housing plan, he talks about reforming rent court and replacing leadership in the city’s housing authority. His priority is to increase housing affordability and eliminate segregation in Baltimore.
He proposes that low-income residents pay less for mortgage down payments and also establishing rent-to-own and “live-where-you-work” programs. McKesson believes that this program could help the people to buy their own homes.
On his platform, he discusses about neighborhood developments, transportation, greenspace and sustainability issues.
McKesson is not a politician; he’s an activist with a strong and fair mind. A leader who is ready to give Baltimore city what it needs.
