I'd like to tell you about a friend of mine, my fellow City Commissioner, Chris Shaw. He's a small business owner and a leader with the Chamber of Commerce. During his first term on the Commission, we've utilized his business expertise to bring new jobs to Dayton, and he has even lead an initiative to give our young people the skills they need to get these new jobs.
As jobs and growth come to our city, we've made it a priority to reinvest in our neighborhoods. We've increased road repaving citywide, and have begun an $89 million dollar investment to improve housing in neighborhoods like Miami Chapel, Edgemont and others. And now, thanks to the Preschool Promise, we are able to ensure that every Dayton four-year-old has access to high quality Pre-K.
Of course, the initiative we're most excited to announce is the return of curbside leaf pickup! That's right -- now you just have to rake your leaves to the curb, and the city will come sweep them up. No bagging necessary! Please visit this webpage to learn when your next curbside leaf pickup day is.
We hope to continue our work to bring growth to our neighborhoods, which is why Chris and I are asking for your vote on November 5th! Please vote to re-elect Matt Joseph and Chris Shaw to the Dayton City Commission.
