Investing in Lansing’s priorities: If we want to keep people living and working in Lansing, we must invest in South Lansing’s priorities, like fixing our crumbling roads, improving public safety and cleaning up our neighborhoods and commercial corridors. Jeremy Garza believes we must get back to basics and spend taxpayer dollars wisely on infrastructure improvements that will benefit everyone.
Putting people before special interests: For too many years now, rich developers and corporate special interests have been running the show at Lansing City Hall, at the expense of regular working families, who have seen their neighborhood roads crumble and local parks left to decay. Jeremy Garza will always put the needs of regular people ahead of CEOs and wealthy campaign contributors.
A fair economy that works for Lansing citizens: The City Council has given away tens of millions in taxpayer dollars to corporations without requiring them to give local workers a fair shot at the jobs that their own tax dollars are helping to create. Jeremy Garza believes that if the City Council is going to continue giving tax breaks to corporations, then the companies receiving the tax breaks should be required to hire local workers first.
