Meet the Candidate: Chris Davis
Have you ever heard of a ‘Prostitute Round Up’ before?
No, it’s not a cowboy themed bachelor party. It’s actually more like Ladies Night at the DPD. See, if you’re a Lady of the Night, you get into the Homeward Bound Drug Treatment Program FREE; no cover for counseling and they validate!
Plus, our very own Chris Davis is one of the counselors helping the Dallas Police Department with this initiative. “It is an effort to help divert the prostitutes arrested around the truck stops on I-20 at Lancaster Rd. into drug treatment instead of going to jail and ending up right back on the streets where they came from.” Davis says.
Not only do they help them through treatment, they also find transitional housing for them and provide mentorships during their recovery. “Many of these women have no sense of what is normal.” Chris told me. One girl had never even been into a grocery store before; she had only ever shopped at gas stations or 7-11’s. She was raised into a family where prostitution was their livelihood and had never had anyone model a normal life to her before. Chris describes this as one of the most gratifying things she has ever done.
I just love it when I see a true conservative put down their checkbook, roll up their sleeves and actually WORK. And Chris is doing just that. Richardson needs to know that she will work for them because she is a real work’en girl!...er, I mean woman, a real (legally) working woman.
As the founder of my HOA she has done a phenomenal job….the streets of Cottonwood Heights have never looked better, there used to be “John's” on every corner before she got here and whipped this neighborhood into shape….and by “John's” of course I mean Murphy signs.
