Sammie's Goals: to the best in whatever my hands touch or do, love God first, keeping Him first in directing my path. I bring to Maywood trust and honesty. Having seen the highs and lows of Maywood, I will work to bring this community that I have called home for so many years to its greatest potential with the help of the people. I want to establish a program to help the seniors in Maywood with taxes so that homes are not lost , and acquire grant money to help fix up their properties. I want to promote the economic growth of this community; acquire a full-line grocery store; support infrastructure, better roads and street safety for our village; institute programs for our youth to avert losing them to the streets; build a skating ring, bowling alley, movie theater, seeing to it that the dollar turns over seven times before it leaves the village, retaining business right here in our own neighborhood.

Please vote for me as Trustee to see someone working hard on your behalf, and working for you with accountability for the cause.
