Latest News and Statements
Dr. Mozhgan's top issues!
Immediate clean-up means shovels in the ground now. We don't want to spend another 30 years meeting with the polluters. We don't want to pay millions of dollars to attorneys as the contamination spreads through our waters.
City Council should immediately ensure the Delonis Center is adequately funded so that the homeless are not sent outside in freezing temperatures. Affordable housing should be easily offered to low-income vulnerable families.
This will require more electric buses, charging stations, paratransit, and microtransit. More frequent bus service, where people need it, will eliminate many cars. This will show how global warming can be reduced. It will also increase employment and reduce homelessness.
We don't want to keep funding these wars on defenseless populations. We can better use that money on our children's education, health care, transit, and affordable housing.
Ann Arbor union members teach our children. They take care of our city. Their jobs should never be outsourced. I’m for repealing the union-busting Taft–Hartley Act and doubling our union membership, city-wide and nationwide.
FIGHT FOR MIN WAGE AT $15
Dr. Mozhgan believes that you work hard enough! You should at least be allowed to live in the city where you work. Asking for a $15 an hour minimum wage is not asking a lot. If every working person had a union, you know that our wages, schools, housing, and transit would be far better.
EDUCATION AND JOBS
City Council should increase its funding to the Neutral Zone’s Jobs Corps Program. This will create more resources and staff to transition under-resourced youth to college. The program does more than just pay for community college. It puts youth aged 18-24 through these five processes: readiness, training, mentorship and coaching, access to city jobs, and a two-year associate degree.
Bold Leadership Our City Needs Right Now!
