WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (PRWEB) February 28, 2018
Christina Lambert, a long-standing local leader, community activist and executive running for the West Palm Beach City Commission seat for District 5, has announced her plan to improve public safety in the city of West Palm Beach and create a safer future for West Palm Beach families, students, seniors and neighborhoods.
Christina Lambert has a proven record on making West Palm Beach safer for all residents. During her time as executive director of Leadership Palm Beach County, Lambert led efforts to secure $20,000 in funding for a Law Enforcement Trust Fund Grant to help improve public safety. Her focus was on crime prevention and drug prevention education for youth leadership programs.
Lambert’s plans include:
> Engage with our neighborhoods and community on increasing communication, dialogue and understanding.
> Support our first responders so they have the funding, resources and training they need to keep us safe.
> Work with first responders and the school district to make sure our schools are safe places for our kids to learn.
> Work with our local schools to implement job training and internship programs so kids are ready for college or the workforce.
> Push for more after-school programs so our kids have somewhere safe to go after school and stay off the streets.
> Create new local jobs for residents including increasing opportunities for small, women- and minority-owned businesses.
“I am working to create a safer community for all West Palm Beach residents,” said Lambert. “The best way to improve public safety is by supporting our police and fire departments, in addition to supporting community benefit programs and creating economic and education opportunities. My experience shows that the more opportunities we can provide individuals in the community to succeed, the less likely they are to turn to crime. I’m focused on creating those opportunities for all our residents.”
