Alice is an educator, a mother of two North Little Rock High School students, and an active neighborhood volunteer. As a classroom teacher, Alice sees the challenges many families face when it comes to providing for the needs of growing children. She knows that as a city, we have the ability to remove systemic barriers that stand in the way of safe housing, food security, and financial stability for all. Everyone deserves access to quality medical care, individualized mental health services, and grocery stores.
Alice is committed not just to studying neglected areas of our city, but also to taking action to make these areas safe for all residents. All neighborhoods should have beautiful public spaces where neighbors of all ages can gather and join in fellowship. Residents must have access to jobs with companies that pay a living wage and reinvest in our city. An updated public transit service that fulfills residents’ needs and connects our neighborhoods is a priority. Focusing on ways to protect our environment while building the economy during a pandemic is a challenge Alice is eager to take on. It will require a fresh approach and new perspective on what North Little Rock has to offer.
