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, maintaining our parks 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 under previous mayors, rich developers and corporate special interests ran the show at Lansing City Hall — at the expense of everyday working families who saw their neighborhood roads crumble and local parks left to decay. Jeremy Garza always puts the needs of Lansing taxpayers ahead of corporate CEOs and special interests.
A fair economy that works for Lansing citizens: During the previous administration, the City Council gave away tens of millions in tax breaks to wealthy developers — without requiring CEOs to give local workers a fair shot at the jobs their own tax dollars helped create. Jeremy Garza believes that whenever the city provides tax incentives to developers, they must be required to hire local, qualified workers first — and pay them a decent wage and benefits so they can support their families.
