Here for Us
I am running for City Council to give back to the community that has given to me.
I have been a single mother for many years. I have experienced one hardship after another. I was in a car crash and lost my job because I needed to recover from the injuries. I had to learn how to ask for help. During my recovery, my grandmother and personal pillar of strength passed away. Simultaneously, I was balancing the special needs of my children. It was these and other hardships that taught me how to find and navigate the available resources in my community.
Thank G-d, the community was there to support me. Thanks to local organizations, the efforts of other community leaders and the compassionate support of friends and neighbors I was able to get back on my feet.
Last year, I spent over 1,500 hours helping the community. This year, I am seeking your support to do much more. Elect me as your next New York City Council member because I am HERE FOR US.
