New Albany Township Board, IN
Max is running for New Albany Township Board because it's the most direct, efficient way to connect people in need with vital resources. If elected, Max will support the efforts of the Township Trustee, especially as they relate to job training programs and homelessness prevention. As the Township is responsible for cemetery maintenance, Max will also fight to protect and preserve Freedomland, a historically significant site that was a burial place for New Albany's African American residents in the 19th century, but has fallen into disrepair and is largely forgotten. If elected, Max will advocate for funding and restoring Freedomland, and for making it a protected state or federal historic site.
