A message from Ron O’Clair – Worcester City Councilor at Large candidate

DSCF1099Ron O’Clair. On the ballot it’ll be: Ronald L. O’Clair.

Hello, Worcester Voters!

I would like to thank all those who graciously accepted my request to sign my nomination papers, from the very first person: Tamami Okano to the 300th and qualifying signature of Seiwaah Osei Kyei and all those in between who made it possible for me to get my name on the ballot for the upcoming Municipal Election as a Worcester City Councilor At-Large Candidate.

I enjoyed interacting with each and every one of you and pledge that if I am elected as your City Councilor I will faithfully execute the duties of that office with the best interests of the people in this city foremost in my mind at all times.

Here are some of the areas in which I believe I can make a difference:

Better relations between the citizens and the Worcester Police.

Increased safety in the individual neighborhoods through community involvement in the judicial process.

Help to ensure that all citizens are treated equally under the law.

Help to ensure that our elderly receive all the help they can get to survive the harsh New England winters.

Reduce fraud, waste and abuse of programs designed to help the needy in Worcester.

Advocate for those who need help combating drug and alcohol addictions, focusing on rehabilitation.

Be available to discuss the issues affecting the average citizen and work to address those concerns.

I would like to help lead Worcester into the future and make it a shining example for other communities in the Commonwealth of of Massachusetts. I have worked with all of my previous Worcester District 4 City Councilors: Janice Nadeau, Barbara Haller and now Sarai Rivera to make a difference in the neighborhood where I have resided since 03 July 1996 – the 700 block of Main Street.

I believe that if elected as a Worcester City Councilor, I can help make the improvements made in my Main South neighborhood happen in the other neighborhoods of Worcester. I believe we need accountability at City Hall and that citizens deserve to be treated fairly and with respect.

If elected, I will strive to make that happen.

Please consider my name when you vote on the 8th of September and the 3rd of November, 2015.

Thank you,

Ronald L. O’Clair
