Bamboo Leaves

Where I stand

As your Delegate, I want to represent you in Annapolis to ensure that we have the leadership that will fight on the issues that we care about the most. North County has been left behind too often when big decisions have been made and I want to make sure that our community has a seat at the table. We are facing a number of problems that we can only face when we come together and take bold measures. That is why I want to bring a fresh new vision to Annapolis that will ensure we do not pass on these challenges. As a candidate for Delegate here in District 12b, I do not just want to earn your vote, I want to serve you and our community effectively. 

Economy

I want to help create an economy that invests in our small businesses and builds our middle class here in North County. Our state government should be an ally and partner in creating the economy residents deserve. 

Education

As a parent, I will fight to ensure every student gets the schooling that they deserve by investing in our schools and educators to make sure that every child goes to a school that is ready to provide the education.

Environment 

Maryland is defined by the Chesapeake Bay. And with the ongoing Climate Crisis, we cannot delay action to preserve our most treasured asset and to protect ourselves from environmental disaster. As you Delegate, I will support legislation to ensure Maryland does just that. 

Public Safety

As a member of law enforcement, I know how to keep communities safe. I pledge to make sure that we are protecting residents and preventing crime across Maryland. Working with law enforcement, victims, and the community we can stop crime and protect our

community.

Upon completion of high school, he enrolled at Tuskegee University to study political science and criminal justice. Upon his return to New York, he put his education from Tuskegee immediately to use and worked for the Suffolk County New York Board of Elections, Suffolk County Probation Office, and the United States Attorney’s Office (New York Eastern District) Weed and Seed joint law enforcement task force and anti-crime program as their Program Director
