I am presently seeking the
position of City Councilman because I believe
in the importance of building a strong community
through economic development and the promotion
of increased civic activism and participation.
I have been active in the community for over 21
years and have worked tenaciously to help develop
and implement youth, education and recreational
programs. It is important that we recognize the
contributions of our seniors and support initiatives
that relate to their health and housing status.
It is equally important that we build affordable
housing for low and middle income families.
I believe it is necessary to continue to build
unique relationships that foster and encourage
growth and development in all communities through
on-going collaboration and partnerships with many
diverse groups. I fully understand the issues
of concern of the constituency; the importance
of providing assistance to local businesses, and
promoting the growth and development of commercial
strips. This will also create employment opportunities.
As a councilmember of the 28th Councilmanic District,
I am committed to supporting the delivery of city
services in the areas of public safety and sanitation,
which will enhance our quality of life.
At the present time, I have received endorsements
from the following public officials: Deputy Majority
Leader Archie Spigner, Councilmembers Juanita
Watkins, Thomas White Jr., and Assemblywoman Pauline
Rhodd-Cummings. I have also received the endorsement
of the Democratic and Liberal Political Parties.
