An honest, competent, and responsive advocate for the 9th Ward.
I was born in South Minneapolis, and I have lived here my whole life. I know this community, I love this community, and I will work hard for this community. If elected to represent the 9th Ward on the Minneapolis City Council, I will partner with every resident and business owner to make sure we all achieve the American dream.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion
The 9th Ward is home to the most diverse group of residents in Minneapolis. I will ensure that our BIPOC communities and our LGBTQIA+ neighbors are never left behind as our great city continues to grow and prosper.
As a biracial man born and raised in Minneapolis, I have personally experienced the unfair and violent
practices that have plagued the Minneapolis Police Department. That's why I am committed to working tirelessly with Chief
Arradondo to reform the MPD.
I have been a successful small business owner for more than 30 years. I understand the importance of partnering with public and private agencies, as well as immigrant and minority business communities.
We need to implement thoughtful, pragmatic and research-based policies to increase affordable housing in Minneapolis. By increasing the supply of housing units and focusing on rent-to-own programs, we can build generational wealth and increase housing stability.
