Why Are We Running For City Council 2021


To all the residents of South East Queens

We need a representative who will “Bring accountability back” to South East Queens. After ample prayers, reflection, and discussion with family, local community, and friends it was determined that I would run for City Council.

As you view our website you will see true advocacy.  I am asking you to support my campaign to bring about change in our community. my platform is based on community needs:

The Challenges we face as a community are not being addressed. Our schools are not adequately educating our children. This is documented in School Digger data sources. Compare our local schools. (Math/Science Research/Technical Magnet High School) to schools in other districts. Additionally, we have a lack of affordable housing, more than our share of shelters, and higher property taxes than more affluent neighborhoods.


To advocate for comprehensive educational programs ( academic, vocational, and STEM) at all levels.

Quality after school experiences and re-entry programs for ex-offenders.


Real Affordable Housing (no more warehousing people in hotel/shelters)

Fighting against up zoning and re-zoning of single-family zones.

Stop illegal foreclosures throughout South East Queens


Work on upgrading our hospitals, water, sewage, for growing population.

                          ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE

Continue to lobby for environmentally friendly Waste Transfer Stations

                                    PUBLIC SAFETY

Look to improve Quality of life issues. NYPD- reform


To, In general, support small business, young adult financial literacy and employment, to generate venues where the talents from southeastern Queens can prosper and work for the people in southeastern Queens.

                        DEVELOP A COMMUNITY RESOURCE HUB

Where community residents can have access to representatives from multiple agencies.

            I greatly appreciate all your past support. I know together we can work to shape the future of southeastern queens into a great place to work and live. I look forward to continuing to work on behalf of our community. It is time to make it official.
