Why should you be elected?
I feel that I can communicate with the people in this district which has never been done since Dixie Allen was in office . The people need to understand what they are voting for so they can make the right decision for themself and their community. I have worked as a first responder for 30 years in this community and have the credibility to have the trust of the people not like the endorsed candidates that has been selected in the past and present. My community has been embarrassed by all the recent endorsed candidates that has been misfits that have done nothing for Dayton’s inner cities.
Top Three Priorities:
Women’s rights & protection
Children’s full protections under the Law
