Elect Henry Perez
Perez has served you as the Alderman of the 12th district since 2013. He values the diverse community we live in and strives to be a servant leader. He values equity in his decisions and brings to the table a broad range of experience.
When elected Mayor, Perez hopes to bring to the table a forensic audit so we can see how our taxes have really been used. We are tired of being nickel and dimed to death and tired of the lack of transparency in the decisions that are being made at the top level. We need to know how our taxes are really being spent and prioritize where our money goes.
We need to recognize the need for public safety and properly fund the police and fire departments. Perez is concerned when members of the community have come up to him and stated that they are afraid to leave their homes because they are scared at the current level of crime and shootings in our city. Perez believes that we must address this issue right away, properly, and not make it a photo op only.
Perez recognizes that we have one of the best marinas from Sheboygan to Grand Haven Michigan, He believes that working with the County we can make our City a better hub for tourist and economic growth by developing our downtown and main street into a truly desirable place to enjoy and spend time and money in.
The community needs to be heard! The current process in place, the “Queue”, is not serving us well. We need to rescind this process and make sure that there is transparency, and we can address all the concerns of our residents in our community.
Perez also had concerns with our antiquated zoning laws and will demand a complete audit and overhaul of the existing rules. This will encourage more economic development in our community, as well as address our food desert.
Perez believes that all persons are important, and we need to address the mental health concerns and homeless concerns that are affecting our city.
Perez desires to have a designated representative to address each of our minority residents’ concerns. The community needs a person who they feel comfortable talking to and helping them resolve their issues, everything from opening a business to getting g a loan. This needs to be an important part of the puzzle as we develop a complete picture of what we want our community to look like.
Your prayers and financial support are very much coveted and appreciated.
Please contact Perez at 305-989-6147 by text or call and share your ideas and concerns on how we can turn this great city, our home, around and make it fulfill its potential.
