I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
Advocacy and employment are not just issues for people in the disability community.
In order for the City of Cudahy to grow, we all must be advocates of the City. It is true that all of the elected officials must advocate for bringing businesses to Cudahy. But is also our responsibility to advocate for Cudahy. Sure, Mayor Day and Lara Fritts are out looking to bring businesses to Cudahy and talking about all the benefits the City has to offer. But if the rest of the residents do nothing but point out the negative things about Cudahy, then why would a business want to relocate or start anew in Cudahy?
Any business that is doing their due diligence is going to look at every aspect that a city has to offer, including talking to its residents. No matter what business somebody is in, upper management always talks up a company, in this case the City. But if the rank and file has very few positive things to say about the company then the company will probably not be able to succeed.
If one of the major reasons to cultivate businesses to come to Cudahy is to create jobs, then everybody from the top down must be on board with the message.
