Tikeeta Wallace says, “I started going down (to County Council) and peeking in those meetings and I realized they were actually talking about my community. And when I realized that, I realized that if you’re going to be talking about my community and making choices on my community, if I can be here and speak, and I’m going to take every opportunity I can.”
Tikeeta joins us to discuss how she went from being unaware of how local government worked to helping lead her neighborhood’s implementation plan with County staff. She strongly believes that the barriers residents are experiencing that they might be embarrassed to discuss are actually helpful information for decision-makers to know to make our community better, and she encourages all residents to speak up and get involved.
