I’m a proud born and raised resident of Joliet, which is why I consider it to be a great honor to have been selected as the Democratic candidate for Joliet Township Supervisor.

I have been actively advocating for Joliet since I graduated from William Penn University in 2009. My passion for electoral politics stemmed from the

opportunity my family gained after the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. It gave my immigrant parents a pathway to citizenship and peace of mind about their status in the United States . I grew up witnessing a policy removing barriers for my family to work hard and prosper gave me the drive to learn about other policies that might improve the lives of more people in my community.

In 2016 I was appointed to begin my first official position as public servant at The Housing Authority of Joliet (HAJ), and I became Chairman in 2019 . In 2017

was elected as a member of the board of education at Joliet Township High School District 204, where I went to school. I became Vice Chairman of the

Board in 2021. I’m proud to continue to serve in both of these roles. My experiences have affirmed my beliefs. Not only that good policy can help the community, but also that we are all more connected than we may realize. My goal is to continue to engage with people and help prove that if we approach policy with a spirit of unity, we will see better outcomes for us all. I need your support! Your contribution will allow my campaign to invest in civic engagement within the community. I am a firm believer that our nation and city need people rooted in community to lead. This is a part of a grassroots campaign that is here to stay and expand.
