#Racetothehouse Issue 2

#ReadyOnDay1 Official Announcement Success

On Saturday, January 2, 2016 my family, friends, neighbors and supporters of the 192nd District gathered at the Overbrook Arts and Environment Education Center for my official campaign announcement. 

Over 100 people filled the room as I shared my vision for the future of the 192nd. Several community stakeholders, whom I have worked with over the years, shared the floor with me on this pivotal day including one of my many mentors, Councilman Curtis Jones Jr.; business owner and investor, Ahmed  Salahuddin, community leaders, Madeline Dunn, Stephanie Kent, Tikea Purcell, and Farida Salim; pastor Zachary Ritvalsky of Sweet Union Baptist Church; and Sam Statten, Jr., President of Laborers District Council 332 . The day was the beginning of a truly Happy New Year and a new chapter for the 192nd District.

I would like to thank all of the people who came out to show their support! A special thanks to my volunteers for putting on an awesome event and to WRNB’s Lady B for serving as emcee for the occasion! I'm excited that so many people from our labor unions, civic organizations, and local businesses came out that day. I look forward to the continued support from the 192nd as we embark on this #racetothehouse to transform the 192nd, block by block.

Help a Neighbor Keep Warm This Winter

As we move into the bitter cold of this winter season, take a moment to check on your family members and neighbors. With an increase in the use of gas and electric in our homes, utilities can become costly. There are programs that can help families and seniors in need of assistance. Low Income Heat and Electric Assistance Program (LIHEAP) is one of those programs. You can find out more about LIHEAP and apply today at https://www.peco.com/CustomerService/AssistancePrograms/Pages/LIHEAP.aspx. Remember, no one should be forced to choose between their health and their heat!

As my #racetothehouse shifts into high gear, I look forward to working with community members and constituents to help make the 192nd a better place for us all.
