MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD & ACTIVATE THE CONSTITUTION
The primary focus of Kinya For Congress is working to INSURE YOUR VOICE IS ABSOLUTELY HEARD ! To few have any real confidence in the government or officials because too many have lost sight of the following simple fact " We the people are the government." I will work to insure that all of District 30 knows the U.S. Constitution as well as learn how to successfully activate it in everyday life. How will Dakinya Jefferson do that? By making sure our children are taught Civics from early childhood and making sure classes are available to instruct elderly of the importance and meaning . We must safeguard our freedom and liberty. Your vote is an integral part of your voice. Cast it wisely by insuring that the one you select to elect will be a true servant ,and not one acting as a Lord over the " WE". Rest assured that I, Dakinya ( Kinya ) Jefferson will be your eyes, ears, voice and servant working everyday to guarantee your voice is heard. I promise I will never place party over the people for it is the people who make the party and the sum total of our Great American Governance in this Republic called these United States. I will be HERE ( Texas ) & THERE ( D.C. ) with an open ear & door for all the good people of our District. Vote RED - Ready- Elect- Dakinya ! This year is the best time and the right season for you to be excited because we are about to " Wake Up! Wise Up! Rise Up! & Take Your Power Back !
BRING OPPORTUNITIES BACK TO THE COMMUNITIES
The Dallas Downtown Skyline stands tall as a beautiful beacon of the Light of Commerce and it's beaming prosperity which has flowed allowing for the growth & economic development of the Dallas Metro area. Although the world sees the beautiful skyscrapers as symbols of this prosperity, when one looks down on the streets of Dallas and it's attached Southern Sector known as District 30, it does not take long to see that abject poverty is knocking on many a door asking for a hand up with little hope of anything besides a few extremely limited handouts which DO NOT answer the door knock. Why? Because too little economic advancement has occurred in this southern sector; however, there is extreme room for growth & Development there. The unfortunate truth is that a great deal of the people who live in this area are predominantly so called Black and Hispanic ( people of color ) and they live well below the poverty level . The people in our District, whether young, old, rich or poor, are in dire need of "OPPORTUNITY" We have talked to the people and the bottom line is the need for industry with good paying jobs so they can address the needs of their own health , education, and welfare within their community.. I plan to work with the people on a blueprint to establish the HOPE & FUTURE which come with real OPPORTUNITY. We most definitely will work to address & tackle the Issues of BRINGING BACK OPPORTUNITY TO THE COMMUNITIES .
RESTORE THE AMERICAN DREAM & RESOLVE HOMELESSNESS
It has long been said the the "American Dream is to have your piece of the pie", yet too many believe they have either never got a slice, someone stole their slice, others are receiving to many slices or the baker just kept the whole thing to eat for himself ! It appears that too many of the " WE" are experiencing an American nightmare. Vast numbers of our elders who worked all their lives paying into our tax system are having to sell their homes and can barley pay for food to eat. It appears the American Dream is more real for Foreigners who immigrate here than it is those who are born here and work by the sweat of their brow from sun up to sundown. Every American deserves the opportunity of affordable home ownership, self sufficiency, a little money saved away in the bank for a family vacation, a rainy day or to invest in a " Good Luck Duck" here & there . I will work to restore faith in the American Dream for the Southern Sector of Dallas. Many are one step from homelessness while many in the district …are indeed homeless. The homeless live in fear and those who observe their plight tend to fear & ignore rather than roar loud for officials to find real solutions to resolve the homeless crisis in the District. I will work to insure No TAXATION without representation ,so that people who have worked hard for their dream homes are not taxed out of them. Also I will work to help pave the path for those who are homeless to be able to become self sufficient ,so they can provide an affordable roof over their heads and be reintegrated into our society. There are too many elderly, disabled, lame ,mentally ill, and sick people on the streets of our district. I Absolutely will work to alleviate the underlying problems leading to their plight, and work to get as many people as possible housed ! We should not do more for animals than we do for humans. We need a more compassionate government ;that is why I will be conducting " A Texas Round Up For A Hand Up " for District 30. Divided we fall but united, we will always stand. United we will restore the American Dream & Resolve Homelessness.
BRING EDUCATION INTO THE 21st CENTURY FOR YOUNG & OLD
This issue has particular relevance for me. I will wholeheartedly work to advance education for the old as well as the young. I grew up in what was known as the " No child left behind "era ,Yet I was left behind. The public school system failed me and so many others who grew up in the 80s and 90s. I just recently became a high school graduate and I am now walking into my chosen career field of public service. It is year 2022, we are well into the 21st Century ,but we are still maintaining standards from previous centuries. We must modernize our educational learning styles and curriculum. We must initiate programs to tap into a child's natural gifs, talents and abilities. Other nations are dancing circles around the U.S.A. in the educational field, and most children of other nations generally speak 3 - 4 languages and are far more advanced than the average American child in math and science. We must learn how to make learning a thrill and necessity for our children. I support mentor programs for single parent homes. The elderly, need to learn how to use modern information systems. We are living in a digital word and too many over age 57 do not know how to access simple text messaging and the internet. We need a " No Adult Left Behind program" so those who were left behind or dropped out can catch up and become more productive citizens and happier people. We need to set in motion plans for school choice options. There is a need to reform the public school systems to conform to futuristic curricular needs. An emphasis must ne placed on science and technology. It is shameful that so many in our District are undereducated. We also need to bring back vocational programs with some geared towards learning electronic systems so the children can learn to manufacture the products they use. Our world is changing and becoming more integrated and we need to change with the times. I am a firm believer that the parent first, then the state, has the right to determine the course of curriculum each child is taught. We must insure every child knows the basics of reading writing and arithmetic. I will work to bring Education into the 21st Century for young and old.
REDUCE OUR TAXES & CREATE INNOVATIVE JOBS
A working America is a prosperous America. Majority workers generate a great tax base with less need for high taxation for the masses. The poor most certainly should not bear a great tax load ; quite the contrary neither should the rich be over burdened. All should pay a fair share and I know of no good American who is not willing to be generous when there is need or when asked. To whom much is given much is required ". Multi-billion dollar Corporations should not be able to hide in trusts and skip out on paying their part. Some of the richest of the rich pay pretty much $ 0. That is not fair to the poor and middle-class who are taxed heavy and struggle to maintain and make ends meet. We all have a role to play in order to form a more perfect union, promote the general welfare and provide for our future. I will work for efficiency and less wasteful spending in government. My mother always said her dad use to said, " sometimes you just got to rob Peter to pay Paul ," stop trying to live like the Jones s, and save for a rainy day. The tax codes need to be reformed and people need to be better educated on why and how we are taxed. Most do not understand taxation, and everyone who works for their dollar wants their whole dollar if they can keep it. I understand, yet we have an obligation and a duty to keep our nation secure, and thriving. The U.S.A. is a business ; all businesses need finance to operate effectively. When workers retire they deserve a good pension.
I will certainly be working to creating Small Business Innovation programs. We need to foster small business and promote industry in our Southern sector. Many innovative solutions must deal with our conversion to the digital world. We must gain Careers dealing with conservation, renewable energy sources, global warming and agriculture. Additionally there are vast food desserts in our district and we must work to resolve these issues. We need more quality, healthy, whole food food stores in the district. I will work to allocate funding for accessibility of these type pragrams.
IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR ALL AMERICANS
Although a great % of the people in the District live below the poverty line …all do not. There are many who fair well and live what most would consider a great middleclass or even rich lifestyle ,yet all deserve and want a better quality of life. When equilibrium is near or actualized , the load shifts and those who were bearing the weight are relieved and those previously in need of load sharing will have become stronger. We all, As Americans must understand that it is ok to be our brother's keeper. There is a strange thing under the sun. One can be "up today and down tomorrow" ,but when we are there for one another, we all gain. Let's all stand tall and make our District the desired place to be! . I will work to Improve the overall quality of life for all in the district and MAKE THINGS BETTER for us all
