On the issues: "I'm a father, a former teacher, my parents were teachers,'' Landsman said. "I was raised to believe in the value of every child and every family." He says he wants to transform the public transportation system "by adding buses and whatever else the community wants to pay for. We need a system where people can easily hop around the city and a system that will enable people to get to good paying jobs." He believes politics in the city "is broken. People are frustrated by the bickering. We have to put aside our differences and work together to make this city reach its full potential."
