Service and Leadership

As a leader, I exhaust every avenue to make my district a better place for the residents, my neighbors. I serve alongside the people in my district to know them, not as constituents but as family.

Throughout my 23 years as Bessemer District 6 Councilman inside of District 56, I worked with with dedication, purpose, persistance, and accountability in the forefront of my decision making. As a leader, we must step outside of our elected duties to go the extra mile. To exhaust all avenues in bettering the district we serve. I extended my duties by joining  organizations that fostered collaboration with other community influencers to bring  new ideas and approaches to shared issues.
