What do you think is the most urgent problem facing your jurisdiction?
"Education. A community center and a hands-on, earn-while-you-learn survival training school are needed. Teach our people to love and respect themselves, the community and their lives. Teach them the discipline of life, to respect their job, to have a good work attitude (such as reporting on time and performing). Teach them how to become law-abiding citizens. Also important are the functioning of the D.C. government, health care and rental housing for singles."
