Moving 4 Forward

Hi neighbor,
I’m a State Representative with a record of delivering results. I’m an educator, director of a youth mentorship program and a local business owner. I have deep roots in our community and have served the 4th Ward by:

  • Saving Mercy Hospital
  • Attracting jobs, affordable housing, and grocery stores to our neighborhoods
  • Securing resources for a local senior center and community center
  • Increasing state funding for violence prevention and public safety

I will continue my commitment to our community as your next 4th Ward Alderman. Together, we will use a holistic approach to tackle residents’ safety concerns and ensure our schools and services receive the resources and investments needed to Move the 4th Ward Forward.


In service,
