The Mayor proposes that 10% of revenue from slots should go towards fixing making these necessary renovations and improvements. I propose that we double that for the first 10 years to 20%, and then scale back to 15% after that time. I will also advocate getting private companies to donate to our schools. It's all about building relationships within our communities. We should focus on building relationships with churches, non-profits, local businesses, students, parents, teachers, state and local government to maintain our schools. If local businesses donate materials or labor towards some of these renovations, we would be able to raise the necessary funds much more quickly. There are also some improvements which members of the community could do themselves with volunteers. People take more pride in things they've invested in, so why not get people in each community and neighborhood to invest in their schools, whether it's through their money or their time.
