Thank you for joining me on this journey to ensure that the communities within the 55th Assembly District (Brownsville, parts of East New York and Bed-Stuy) receive their fair share of support and resources from city agencies, and caring corporate partners.

I am a lifelong resident of Brownsville, and active community partner in the district, working with youth, young adults and seniors.

Together, we will fight to secure affordable housing for seniors, families and millennials. I am committed to working with community and caring corporate partners, to bring necessary resources to Brownsville, East New York and Bedford Stuyvesant.

I am asking for your support and partnership on this journey. Support comes in many forms, including Volunteering or Donating.  I am also asking for your Vote on Thursday Sept, 13, 2018, as the ultimate support and a commitment to our partnership. 


Thank You!
