Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

HELLO MY NAME IS KEVIN ROONEY. I AM A 44 YEAR RESIDENT OF BALDWIN PARK. AS A LITTLE COACH FOR OVER 23 YEARS OFF AND ON IN OUR GREAT CITY I BELIEVE IN KIDS FIRST. OUR CITY IS FILLED WITH HARD WORKING MIDDLE CLASS CITIZENS THAT WANT OUR CHILDREN TO GROW UP AND BUY THERE HOMES IN THE TOWN THEY HAVE THOSE SPECIAL MEMORIES IN. RIGHT NOW IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE FOR OUR RESIDENTS TO AFFORD A $750,000 CONDO OR HOUSE WITH MAINTENANCE FEES ATTACHED. OUR GREAT CITY IS BEING REGENTRIFIED AND WITH YOUR HELP I WILL DO ALL I CAN TO MAKE SURE OUR CHILDREN WILL BE ABLE TO AFFORD A HOME IN OUR GREAT CITY OF BALDWIN PARK
