Candidate for City of Utica Common Council
Meet Delvin Moody
Progressive | Innovative | Passionate
Unapologetically Democratic with real progressive values.
It is vital to building people power, that the community feels empowered and engaged! I value optimism and inspiring people that their voice matters.
City + Education Connectivity
Education is an intricate part of addressing socioeconomic issues in the community. I believe that there should be better connection between education and city government. I’ll work to build that bridge between the board of education and city council.
Social Justice + Equality
It is no secret that we need champions of justice and equality. While Utica is a diverse place there still remains pockets out of our community that simply feel left behind. We can do more to raising social justice to the forefront. I’ll fight to always keep silenced voices, heard
Voting is fundamental to having a vibrant democracy. Believe it or not, many people in the community either are uneducated voters or experience other challenges in the voting process. I believe that we should increase voter education and build a strong progressive voting electorate.
Results Driven Policy
Rhetoric is good but the only thing people care about is results. Government and city council should always produce the best policies and legislation that will impact the community in the present and future. No longer, can we present legislation that promotes personal political capital but does little to actually serve the people.
Government by the People
It goes without saying that I support the people. I’m running to be their advocate, and promote their best interest. I’ll hold local elected leaders accountable and fight everyday for marginalized groups. When people feel represented at the table they ultimately feel better about the city.
