My name is D’Angelo Taylor and I am running for City Council to represent the 2nd Ward in Evansville, Indiana because my story is similar to many of the residents in my ward. The 2nd Ward is comprised of HARD-WORKING citizens and I want to be the champion that they need and the champion that they deserve. 

One thing that I learned during my upbringing was that the moral responsibility for any leader is that of caring for EVERYONE that they serve, not a select few. I believe in helping my neighbors no matter what our disagreements are because that is what leaders do. My approach is very simple, I want to ENGAGE the citizens of my ward in the processes of city government because a government is supposed to work for the people, not against them! 

My message to the 2nd Ward:

  • Let’s push for affordable housing! This issue affects the elderly, marginalized, and disenfranchised who live in our community. This begins with allocating one million dollars to the Affordable Housing Trust to ensure that affordable housing can be built and maintained while properly investing the money to lower the burden of rent on the most vulnerable in our ward. 
  • Let’s bring business and employment options to our ward! There are multiple incentives for entrepreneurs and businesses to locate to the 2nd Ward. I am going to push for these opportunities because it is what we deserve as a ward. 
  • Let’s push for an ordinance that will require the city’s water company to bill customers for the water that they actually use! Currently, citizens are having their rates increased because of city projects that were not planned and those increases should not be on the backs of the taxpayers. 
  • Let’s demand budget transparency from our elected officials! No one should have to wonder where their tax dollars are being spent, especially when the city continues to raise taxes on them. Any agency or business collaborating with the city (whether federal, state or local) should have to file a detailed report and that report should be readily available to every citizen in our city via public notice (beyond what is published in print media) and on the city council’s website.   

With your contribution, I will be able to help those who live in my community while actively engaging them in the process. My slogan is Leadership for a Brighter Future and with your help, I will be able to see this come to fruition in the 2nd Ward.  

Your friend,

D’Angelo Taylor
