I was the first person to speak at the Coronado Theater in November 2013 when Transform Rockford was introduced. What we need most isn't happening.


After recent violence at the end of 2016 and the beginning of 2017, it worries me that we haven't heard from our mayor or police chief yet. I'm not looking for these individuals to have the answers as much as I just wish they were saying something. Sometimes just the voice of a leader reminding us that they are 'on it' is all we need to hear. I believe Transform Rockford can work, I want it to work, but my greatest fear is that Rockford won't ever experience true transformation unless the PEOPLE of Rockford change. Without love we are bankrupt.
