Last week, while speaking with the people of Johnston Square, I met Johnnie Lockwood. Johnnie is a carpenter who is looking for work. At the same time, there are thousands of vacant homes in Baltimore looking for carpenters.
My campaign to represent the 12th District on City Council is about building up Baltimore, connecting its neighborhoods, and improving the lives of its residents. So for the next week I am using my campaign Facebook page and this campaign website to try to find work for Johnnie.
If you, or anyone you know, is looking for an accredited carpenter just let us know. We will forward all responses to Johnnie. And when I am elected to City Council, I will work to solve the problem of unemployment that affects all the young people in Baltimore.
