Rishy and I grew up with little and have hard work been very fortunate. I believe in our community and it’s potential. I believe our community will benefit from open waterfront to all, 1500 jobs and no new taxes with over a million dollars going back to the city. I also gave my word to Admiral Fetterman to do all I can to make this vision and his dream come true. When it became apparent money would have to spent to counteract misinformation from save our city I did not want others to divert money they spent on their family, church, charities so I pledged to cover the majority of the cost. I believe in our community and this project will make the quality of life better for all.
