The Plan

Operation S.A.V.E

m

Security

Our city, for the vast majority, don’t feel safe. It has been a concern for some time and it is time for much of that to change. With one of seasoned partnerships we are able to bring the Clements Clear Lighting Initiative with 5G internet, Cameras, powered by solar panels.

Assets

Ask not what you can do for your city, ask what can your city do for you? With a robust plan to educate citizens on funding that’s available through technology changes and utility agreements. Citizens can take advantage of great savings and rare incomes through new ideas and proper planning.

Value

This is the City of Champions, a City of legends and its time that its citizens enjoy the fruits of it labor with parks, museums, historical monuments and second-to-none services that are far past due.

Economic Development

We are rapidly approaching our centennial as a city established in 1925. However, our living situation has not experienced the growth needed to sustain businesses, schools, and attract big box retailers. Many other cities have adopted a green city initiative and risen to the occasion regarding technology that has increased its city profile and provided simple systems that are designed around growth.

Government Transparency

Too much legislating happens in darkness, behind closed doors, and under the wrong guidance. Even if you are in full support of your representative, it’s impossible to actually talk to them and hold them accountable. As your future representative, I believe it is my job to serve as your voice in the world around us, and to do that, I want to hear from you. In May 2019, I quit my full-time job as a full-time soldier so that I can be accountable and available full-time to my city throughout this campaign. You want to get in contact with me? Do it: info@voterodneyclements.com or call/text 251-289-1193 (please be respectful that bedtime for me is 8 p.m.). Or, find me at Big White Wings, Community Events, church service, or the supermarket. I live here, in Prichard. I will be here, in Prichard, for my constituents, for my family, for my friends. Once I’m your new Mayor, that won’t change.
I also believe transparency should not be left up to individual legislators to define for themselves. As such, I will push for stronger open-records legislation across the board.

Investing In Family

For far too long, the City of Champions have had to choose between protecting their jobs and championing their families. But the reality is, that for most citizen, our family is the reason that we maintain our careers. We deserve policies that aren’t just “family friendly” but are stringently pro-family. This includes a campaigning and primary focus on what we are able to do together. What we can do as a City of Champions.

Education

Prichard is experiencing an unknown shift of working professionals and families moving into our districts. But, we are also seeing a devastating flight of promising young native citizens out of our city. We need to invest in our young talent and create opportunities for them to build their adult lives here, at home. This begins with increasing the availability of higher education pathways, including career-technical programs, while limiting the out-of-pocket expense to students.
As we prepare Prichard for all available industries, we must also build training and apprenticeship programs that ensure fulfilling and profitable jobs for our citizens. It’s not enough to have great schools anymore – we need great schools that secure great jobs for their graduates.

Infrastructure

With recent events, our organization is very aware of infrastructure costs and benefits as it relates to roads, bridges, and homes. First off, let me state, I always have and continue to believe that a “freeway” should be FREE. But, we must also pay attention to the other important facets of infrastructure: power lines, sewer systems, water supply, and, importantly for equitable opportunity across the district, broadband access. The population of our city has outpaced our infrastructure updates. We must invest in the backbones of our community now in order to allow our economic expansion to continue in a meaningful way.
