Kevin's personal passion is to help reduce the plight of poverty and escalating violence with regards to some of our youth and young adults today. He wants to empower them with the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to learn to gain a viable place in society. He hopes by doing so they may have the possibility to ascertain and understand the value of responsibility and commitment to the betterment of our country. His goal is to create a more productive and reliable workforce that values the ideals of integrity, leadership and hierarchy, while having a moral sense of accountability.
Kevin feels that we need to bring people from the lower part of the economic distribution in discussion about how they are to become a part of the leadership class, part of the class that creates value. He thinks this is imperative in order to hold society together and create a better future for us all. It is his desire to repair and strengthen the family dynamic and reestablish our nation as a formidable leader in the areas of global commerce and business profitability with a workforce driving local and national economies as well as our global counterparts.
