Progressive Leadership to Move Detroit Forward
I am a true Detroiter through and through. This city has been my home since the day I was born, and I've never lost my unwavering faith in its resilience and potential. Growing up on the streets of southwest Detroit, I learned firsthand the value of hard work and the importance of standing up for what's right. My grandmother, who raised me in the Clinton Street Greater Bethlehem Temple, taught me the importance of caring for those around me and protecting the vulnerable.
Despite facing many obstacles in my early years, I refused to let them define me. I earned my GED from Detroit Public Schools and went on to obtain an associate degree from Wayne County Community College District. I continued my education at Western Governors University, where I studied business marketing and gained valuable insights into the world of commerce.
Throughout my career, I've had the privilege of working for both union and non-union employers, giving me a unique perspective on the benefits and vital importance of unionization. I've seen firsthand how unions can empower workers and ensure they are treated with dignity and respect.
But most importantly, I am a firm believer in the people of Detroit. I've seen the grit, determination, and compassion of our residents firsthand. I know that with the right leadership and vision, we can rebuild and restore this city to its former glory. My vision for Detroit is one of a thriving, diverse metropolis filled with green spaces and small businesses owned and operated by its residents. A city where everyone has access to safe, clean jobs that pay a living wage. A city where children can play in the streets without fear of violence, and seniors can enjoy their golden years in peace and security.
I'm running for office because I believe in the power of the people. I know that together, we can achieve anything we set our minds to. Join me on this journey, and let's work together to make Detroit the vibrant, thriving city we all know it can be.
