NELSON CINTRON JR ADDRESSES HIS CRITICS

Submitted by Nelson Cintron Jr on Sat, 07/18/2009 - 15:01.

To Everyone in Ward 14,

First and foremost, I want to thank REALNEO for allowing me this opportunity to engage the residents of Ward 14 through this technology. I applaud their civic efforts to provide this forum.

I respect your opinions. I am readily available to meet with you and work towards a common goal.  I look forward to working with everyone and to make sure that Ward 14 gets great representation.  Thank you for your concerns.

Yet, please do not use the concept of a "job" as a scapegoat to addressing my life long dedication to our community. I am willing to take half the pay to do the same work if all the other candidates who are running would do the same. This election, the needs of our people, and the work that needs addressed are not about a paycheck to me. 

I could take this one step further and tell you that I believe that there should be term limits to this job. If you are really so concerned about the issues, then unite forces with me.

I can help to change the city charter to allow term limits and to reduce council member pay in half.  When you are ready to take action give me a call. I am willing to assist our community in making this happen. I cannot do this alone. It takes a community to collectively make changes. If this is a consensus of our community, than we will take the appropriate steps to collaborate, effectuate, and implement the changes the residents want. I am the leader who will fight to support our community's wishes even when it means going against the grain of City Hall. However, we all need to work together to make these changes possible.

Despite our differences, I will still represent everyone equally and fairly. I am not about holding grudges, but about gettings results. If there are any specific issues that you want to discuss- then I am available to answer your questions. Let's unite towards achieving common goals. If you want to know something, then call me and ask me.

I have eight years of solid track records of development . I will be posting them soon. There were milliions of dollars in development that were implemented and are still being implemented in our area due to my work. Good examples are the Green Space with the Roberto Clemente Project that just opened this year, the NEW CMSD public school projects such as Thomas Jefferson Middle School which broke ground this year and Buhrer Elementary School, one of our proud multicultural schools where children can speak two languages. These are only a few examples, but I am willing to share the records and newsletters that prove my record.

These projects took years of planning, collaboration, and execution. Some positive changes and development take years to finally become reality. Some can happen rather quickly. My track record will be posted for your review.

The NEW sections of Ward 14 (the old Ward 15) are a solid neighborhood. I will continue to build that section, leaving no one behind. We will all work on common goals to stabilize these areas.  

The residents of Ward 14 who know me and have worked with me know that I will roll up my sleeves at City Hall and get the job done, regardless of politics. Let's set our differences aside and get past the negative blogging and let's all work together for the NEW WARD 14's best interests.

 

SINCERELY,

NELSON CINTRON JR.
