Fredrick Richardson Jr.
On the Council, Richardson is chairman of the Public Safety Committee. He played an active role in reshaping the approach to criminal justice issues including implementing community policing, establishing entire neighborhoods a drug free zone, and establishing advisory groups that function at the precinct level. Richardson has focused on removing conditions that breed crime such as litter, junk, abandoned houses, weeds, and blight in general. Affordable housing, family oriented community centers, storm water retention, recreation for youths, jobs, education, economic development, training and all issues pertaining to illegal drugs are apart of Richardson's focus. His Beat by Beat, Street by Street and House by House model of representing the people has become standard in all council districts. (cityofmobile.org)
