Baltimore Pastor Thanks Trump For Launching Revitalization Council, Investing In Impoverished Communities
Baltimore pastor Donte Hickman, of the Southern Baptist Church, was there for the announcement and thanked the president in advanced for “funding and resources” he will direct to the urban communities like Baltimore.
“The executive order you signed today will make it possible for us to work with your administration on a common goal of investing to restore people as we rebuild properties in neglected communities,” Hickman said. …
“The resources of the whole federal government will be leveraged to rebuild low income and impoverished neighborhoods that have been ignored by Washington in years past. No community will be ignored, left on the sidelines,” Trump said.
A recent revision of federal tax code creates incentives for developers to invest in neighborhoods such as Broadway East, as that neighborhood is called, was designated an opportunity zone as well.
“Mr. President I want you and every agency and potential investor to know that in Baltimore, and in particular, Broadway East Baltimore, that we have the plan, that we have the property, we have the people, we have the professional expertise and we have a perspective to jump start your urban initiative,” Hickman added. “Baltimore is prepared to be a demonstration project for a national, urban revitalization strategy.”
