Background: An occupational therapist and radio talk show host. Working on a PhD at Union Institute and University, has a master's degree in occupational therapy and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Findlay. Twenty-two years of experience in customer service and patient care. She runs what she described as a "small home health care agency."
On the issues: "I am running for council to fight for inclusion and against injustice," Prather said. She said she believes in a city government that is "open and accessible to all people, regardless of race, religion, sexual orientation, economic class or gender." She believes that when developers come into neighborhoods to build housing, they should be required to make 25 percent of their housing affordable to low-income persons. But, she said, they should also be required to hire a workforce that is at least in part from that neighborhood.
