Candidate Statement

The issues that pressed our district when I ran for Assembly in 2006 have not only remained but have gotten worse.

Near-sighted politicians are concerned with acquiring greater personal political power to perpetuate an agenda that continues to fail our communities; dividing us based on our beliefs and socio-economic status, and therefore not representative of our district.

When the same old thing keeps failing, we need a new approach. We need a new perspective. We need to become involved in our communities and not leave it to the political machines that permeate our city and debases and taints our neighborhoods.

As your elected official, I promise fair and honest representation with the endeavor to make present within our communities the best kind of life for each human being who lives in our district.
