I am excited and humbled to share this news with you. I am running for State Represenative of Illinois' 9th District.
Serving in public office is an honor and a duty, one which I do not take lightly. I am running to help continue moving forward the new vision and direction of our new state government. I want to be a part of this new and creative approach to the way the state looks at economic development, gun violence, criminal and social justice and the State's budget deficit.
The issues facing Illinois can be solved with innovative and collaborative efforts at and from all levels of government. My time working with City of Chicago and Cook County government officials has shown me that we are not an island to ourselves. We must work together to better the lives of the citizens of Illinois. As Chair of the Cook County Young Democrats, I reformed the organization and brought in new people with fresh ideas and different experiences to partner with wisdom and institutional knowledge. I believe the same must be done for Illinois' state government.
To win this election, I'm going to need your help.
I need you to be one of the first supporters of my campaign. Contribute today and, together, we can build a strong campaign and create the change we want to see. Sign up to volunteer, knock on doors and talk to neighbors and share our vision for the state of Illinois.
I want to also commend outgoing State Representative and Deputy Majority Leader Arthur Turner, Jr. Art's body of work in the Illinois House of Representatives, especially his work in criminal and social justice reform has been a tremendous contribution to the people of Illinois. I remember meeting Art when he was a law student at Southern Illinois University. I was in my senior year at the university, and even then I can tell you that Art was a leader in his own right. Thank you for your dedication to Illinois and the 9th District, Art.
