Why Marlin for

Candidate for Mayor

Only 10% of Pittsburghers voted in the primary. The families of our city want and deserve common sense leadership. They care about vibrant streets where their children are safe to play, updated infrastructure that connects them to business districts and empowers small businesses, and leadership that works with our city's growing tech sector to create job pathways that build generational wealth.

As a longtime mentor to black youths, a proud husband and father of four young children, I share these goals. Any radical agenda that undermines the importance of a well-checked and transparent police presence will set our city back. A radical agenda that uniformly tells Black people that what they need is affordable housing, versus the opportunity to have real equity, the equity of home ownership and the opportunity to build generational wealth won't bring us closer to unity. I'm running for Mayor because I see great potential in each and every Pittsburgher. And I love this city. This city made me. It lifted me. And now it's my time to reach and lift others. This campaign is all about helping each Pittsburgher rise to their fullest potential. It's not a black versus white agenda. It's a collaborative agenda that embraces the city's growth, encourages more growth -- and asks everyone how they can become a part of our city's next chapter.

I am not a career politician. I'm an executive. I lead people. I know how to run a successful business. I'm as connected to the issues and challenges in corporate and nonprofit boardrooms as I am to matters in the neighborhood.

There are no special interests or radical organizations involved with my campaign. This is a true grassroots campaign that appeals to every Pittsburgher that wants safer streets, real equitable growth and common sense leadership.
The Business of Covid-19 Recovery
The Business of Covid-19 Recovery: which requires a comprehensive execution plan with a sense of urgency and intention.

This plan touches economic restoration, psychological safety, responsible management of COVID- 19 relief funds, prioritizing the full recovery of marginalized communities and families suffering from food insecurity, housing instability, job loss, and creating a framework for next generation private-public partnerships.
Small Business and Emerging Sectors
The Return of Small Business and Emerging Sectors: small business is under attack, without small business we have no Pittsburgh.

We want to broaden partnerships with community banks, community development, and financial institutions to make businesses aware of what federal programs have to offer, such as the Small Business Association. We want to design pandemic relief programs focused on businesses that are most in need. We want to build outreach to smaller businesses, newer businesses and minority businesses and disenfranchised communities. We will encourage business creation. With labor as an issue, we will require innovation, collaboration and a culture of equity as an administration.
Police Reform-Community Reform
A comprehensive framework that consists of education, training & development, and accountability for both law enforcement and community.

This issue has many layers and is beyond defunding the police, it addresses appropriate allocation of resources across the board. This includes funds, cultural competency development- which is more than a once-a-year training, instead we’re suggesting a cultural overhaul. Relating to implementing authentic community ambassadors responsible to build police relations with the black community and creating best fit solutions, increasing police presence in areas that feel under-policed, and it includes applying resources for police and public service in surviving the drug use crisis we have in our communities, Mental Health is integral in this administration’s police reform strategy. The community will be able to give consistent feedback as Transparency, Engagement, Accountability, Measurement and (T.E.A.M) are the tenets of this issue.
High Performance Health Agenda
High Performance Health Agenda: Ensuring the well-being of each resident through Health and Healthcare Equity, Transparency, Measurement, and Accountability.

We will tackle the disparities highlighted in the Pittsburgh Gender Equity Report which is inclusive of Maternal Health & Infant Health, Mental Health, Cancer, and Cardiovascular Outcomes. We will center social determinants of health as a central focal point as there have non-traditional factors such as transportation, food desserts, employment and mobility, housing and disconnected community services that prohibit the health and well-being of many of our residents. Our agenda will foster optimal relationships with diverse stakeholders to provide access, increase quality, ensure equity and maximize total health.
Affordable Housing and Pathways to Home Ownership
Affordable Housing and The Pathways to Home Ownership: Is a multi-stakeholder platform to drive and increase access to home ownership for generational wealth creation.

Partnerships will be established with community banks, developers, private sector businesses, and our philanthropic resources. It will no longer be acceptable to be in our region and in our neighborhoods and not be a community partner.

Will deal with supporting families desiring home ownership as a generational wealth builder, and we do that through partnerships. This policy prevents the perpetuation of oppressive practices and culture that limits the progression of growth and economic advancement.
