CANDIDATE For State Representative
My team and I are working on a comprehensive anti-violence plan that aims to better coordinate violence intervention, street outreach, social programming, workforce development and community policing.
I’ve often been described as determined and a fighter. I am.
I would like the opportunity to fight for the voiceless and people who are unable to fight for themselves. I would like to fight for job creation, Education and safer communities.
I know that I am a politicians unknown and fairly young, but I believe that people are tired of career politicians. I am ready to be a part of the change that we desperately need.
Working together, we can connect our neighborhoods with the resources for Cuyahoga County needed addresses; our properties and restore our neighborhoods.
I intend to spend the coming months engaging the community and getting to better know the people’s concerns. I want to arm myself with the grassroots knowledge needed to serve you.
