|Gaspar, Brian||Yes||Yes I believe poverty is one of the critical concerns that require our attention.
If we examine the root causes that lead to the increase in the poverty across the region we will find that one of the largest contributing factor was the loss jobs.
Secondly many of the individuals loosing their jobs were unable to acquire jobs that were equivalent to their previous jobs working at rates slightly above minimum wage. and creating additional hardships.
As jobs were lost the void could not be replaced fast enough.
We need the good paying jobs back.
For the short term we need churches schools our grocers to establish food drives for those who are less fortunate.
The lomg term fixes many of the platforms will gear around new jobs around the airports, stadium,light rail and hopefully the Pan Am games .
Bringing new business and corporations back can and will be able to give back to communities to help in the reduction of city poverty.
