Moving 4 Forward
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.
