The people of St. Louis need real justice - criminal justice, economic justice, environmental justice, racial justice and social justice - to live prosperously in our city. We spend the majority of the city budget on public safety but continue to see record amounts of violence.
We give away tax incentives to corporate developers while our schools don’t have enough money to stay open. We see privatization of public goods threatening workers and our economy. Shedrick strongly believes we need a criminal justice system that actually is just and holds all who harm St. Louisans accountable.
He believes in strengthening the right of workers’ to organize and supports the minimum wage increase in St. Louis City and across the state. He believes we need to reign in corporate welfare and invest in our communities and public goods, and hold accountable those who don’t have the best interests of St. Louisans at heart.
Having a government of the people, for the people, means having a government that is accountable to the people and focused on bringing justice to the people. That’s what Shedrick will focus on as the Alderman for the 7th Ward.
