Several people have asked me why I decided to run for County Supervisor for the 7th district. My reply is because I am connected to the people and I want to be their voice.
Through social services, I have served for more than 10 years in the trenches with the people advocating for their needs to improve their quality of life.
The mission of the Board of Supervisors is to enhance self-sufficiency, personal safety, economic opportunity and quality of life of the citizens of Milwaukee County. The residents I have spoken to in 7th district is asking for this mission to be fulfilled. I will like to help the residents become self-sufficient by addressing issues employment issues, I would like to help make the parks safe for families to enjoy, I will like to see the county provide transportation to and from employers, I will like to be the voice of the people. Why because I am connected to the people in my community.
My affiliations in the community include working with at-risk youth at Revive Youth and Family Services, where I oversee the Substance Abuse program and the Juvenile Cognitive Intervention Program (JCIP). Along with my work with adolescents I volunteer to various non-profit agencies throughout Milwaukee.
