I grew up on the South Side of Chicago. I live and work in the 5th District. As your State Representative, I will fight to make state government more responsive to your needs. As a small business owner, I understand that entrepreneurship and economic development can change lives and create safer communities. As a teacher at Harold Washington College and Director of a youth mentorship program, I understand the importance of funding a world class education and mentoring the next generation of leaders. I am the right choice for the challenges we are facing right now. I ask for your support and vote on Tuesday, March 20, 2018.
