Why I’m Running
On December 21st, I announced my candidacy for State Representative for the 192nd District and officially began my #racetothehouse! My #racetothehouse did not begin that day, but started many years ago. I am a proud, lifelong resident of the 192nd District. Growing up in the District, I was blessed to have a loving family that strongly believed in education and service. However, I witnessed the ill effects of gun violence, poverty, drug abuse and inadequate schools for my family and our neighbors in my community. And our unfortunate reality is that these problems persist in the District today, twenty years later.
Yet beyond the borders of the 192nd, Philadelphia is becoming a NEW world class city. We are all witnessing the revitalization of Center City, along areas on Market Street, and in different parts of South and North Philly. I’m running to make sure the 192nd isn’t left behind. It’s time for the 192nd to get our fair share of new housing, new schools, and new businesses.
I have been working in and for the district for several years and am looking to continue the work that I’ve done at the local level, bringing the resources and services to the District as State Representative. I’m #ReadyOnDay1 to serve and make an impact on the lives of constituents of the 192nd District
Please join me at my OFFICIAL campaign announcement this Saturday, January 2nd from 10am until 12 noon. The announcement will be held at the Overbrook Environmental and Arts Center located at 6134 Lancaster Avenue. Come out and show your support!
Holidays in the District
Throughout the holiday season, I’ve been blessed to be able to spread some holiday cheer by working with great partners to support families throughout the 192nd District. During the Thanksgiving holidays, I worked with Brown’s ShopRite to provide turkeys for over 50 families. On the week before Christmas, I also coordinated a Winter Wearables giveaway with Councilman Curtis Jones, Jr., artist PNB Rock, and community groups Village of Champions and Town Watch Integrated Services. Last week, I celebrated the holidays with State Senator Vincent Hughes at his “Party With a Purpose” holiday party an annual event held to raise money and goods for families in need. I was also honored last week by the Lambert Legacy Charities with the Community Hero Award. It is truly a humbling experience to be honored for the work you do when that work is your passion. I look forward to continuing this work into the New Year and as the next State Representative for the 192nd District.
