I want to be apart of this solution."Christopher Pike says, "you need to have somebody at the table to say these are the issues, this is why we need to do this, and you should support that and I've been very successful in doing that over the last four years."Cheryl Calhoun says, "I know how to say I messed up but look lets get it right and our city needs that change and that push not to hurt each other but to come together and work together."
