1. What is the most important issue in Council District 35 you would address if elected?

The current and proposed development and construction taking place in our district has created a great divide amongst our residents. I propose to bring our community together as one by bringing all the concerned parties to the table of access, and create solutions that will be mutually beneficial to the district as a whole.


2. What other important issues would you address if elected?

Other important issues that I would address if elected would be to Oppose any and all Tax Increases, Cutting Property Taxes, Creating Access to Affordable Housing for all, Supporting the Growth of Small Businesses, Fighting Against Gov’t Waste, Fighting For Quality Education for all Students, Providing Mentoring and Funding for After School Programs for Our Youth, Expanding Senior Services and Protecting Our Seniors from Abuse, Creating and Securing Jobs, Securing Affordable Health Care for all while working to make our Communities Safer and Improving Police-Community Relations.


3. What makes you the best candidate for this office?

As a life long resident of my district, a husband and a father of three who understands the needs of family and core family values, with my extensive experience in City, State, and Federal government, coupled with my network of citywide community organizations and professionals, I bring a pragmatic approach and a new generation of non-corrupt political representation, that works for and serves everyone. As a non-party controlled individual who will always do the business of the people first, I will work in concert with my colleagues on both sides of City Hall regardless of party affiliations to deliver the resources and necessary services to our community. I am the right Candidate to get the job done. Can I please count on your vote?
