Equity and Representation

I know the importance of representation. That’s why I led the fight to create six majority black districts in the County Legislature. I’m proud to say I won that fight. With new, more equitable reconnecting with those I’ve served the past two years.

As your legislator I:  

  • FOUGHT TO KEEP YOU SAFE - by increasing the public safety budget, to hire more deputies, prove resources to the crime lab, and fight the violence on our streets.

  • SAVED YOU MONEY - by voting for tax breaks for seniors, individuals with disabilities, and volunteer firefighters and eliminating sales tax on clothing and shoes.

  • PUT PEOPLE TO WORK - with historic investments in workforce development programs; training residents for jobs in the skilled trades, nursing, advanced manufacturing, and more. 

  • HELPED MINORITY AND WOMEN OWNED BUSINESSES - by supporting a local certification program that has already enrolled more than 350 businesses.
