KEEPING NEIGHBORHOODS SAFE
Nothing is more important than keeping our neighborhoods and families safe. As your Councilmember, Victor Tate will fight to prioritize funding to reduce emergency response times. He will work to expand after-school/summer programs and community-based organizations to engage our young residents with life skills and career readiness opportunities. He will also work with public safety leaders to increase neighborhood patrols and train community watch groups using the most effective, innovative and grass roots methods to combat and prevent crime.
EXPANDING PROGRAMS FOR CHILDREN/YOUTH
As an advocate, educator, and senior pastor, Victor Tate understands what it takes to give our kids the resources and attention they need to succeed. We can count on him to protect funding for programs families need; as well as building stronger partnerships between City Hall, neighborhood schools, community centers and faith-based institutions to ensure ‘all hands on deck’ to mandate the well-being of our children
PROTECTING SENIORS/LEGACY RESIDENTS
As an Atlanta native and resident of District 1, Victor Tate knows that we need to protect critical city services from cuts, especially those our seniors rely on. On the City Council, Victor will work tirelessly to create stable funding mechanisms for Atlanta’s seniors and legacy residents to be able to afford to remain in the homes and communities they have spent their lives in. In addition, he will ensure the wrap-around services needed for seniors raising grandchildren and other young family members, which is a vastly growing demographic among Atlanta residents.
REFORM LOCAL GOVERNMENT
Victor Tate is committed to making city government more transparent, efficient, and
accountable. In order to achieve this, Victor will expand the use of technology in the delivery of services and ensure detailed information about how our tax dollars are being spent is available online, for every resident to see, in real time. He will also work to increase community input in the budgeting process.
