Candidate’s preferred pronouns
What office are you running for?
US House – Georgia 4th District
With which party are you running for office?
Why are you running for office?
I am fighting to be an advocate for the people because I have suffered some of the same trouble people around the district suffering from. I have had to fight Crohn’s disease, bullying, the loss of my youngest son, depression, and homelessness for over 2 years. During the day I work as a Network Security engineer. Throughout my career I have been VP of Northlake Chapter Pioneers, helped with United Way, assisted the community while singing on the praise team at his previous church and helped with voter registration drives. I am running to bring the change my district and home deserves, representing those that have been forgotten.
What is the biggest issue facing your community and how do you propose helping?
We need jobs and money brought back into the district. I plan on working with IT professionals to continue to train low income and homeless individuals on jobs that are available now for free and help with job placement then intern working with major corporations to bring those jobs back into the district working to being a corporate office.
How do we fix the partisan divide in our country and start working together again?
Reach out to the constituents of all of there areas to show them how they’ve been forgotten and utilize that leverage in convincing those elected officials on any proposed bills that would help within their area.
