Greetings, I am Arnetta Simms I live in the Upton Community for 37 years. I have raised my three beautiful daughters here. I have seen the community change over time. It is a great community to live in however it has some challenges. If you want to change things you must get involved to see that happen. So, in 2008 some neighbors and I got together and formed the Etting Street Association trying to make a difference. I am currently the President. Also, I sat on the board of the Upton Planning Committee for years before coming the Vice President. I Take great pride in trying to work with the city officials to have a decent place to live for all. Be God’s will as we continue to strive to be the change for our community and for children of the future. Peace be!!
