Cain is pushing for running/walking/biking lanes to connect the big neighborhoods of Mint Hill to the downtown area.

Hurricane Sandy caused at least $20 billion in damage and caused power outages from Maine to Manhattan to North Carolina.

After the hurricane, Ribera began to figure out a way to help.

“It got me immediately thinking, what can we do, we’re here, everybody’s fine, we have power, we have resources,” Ribera said.
