How I will serve!


I don’t have all the answers but I am willing to search for them or seek them out from others who know more than myself. I don’t want complete control, I respect other’s point of view and I am a firm believer in inclusion when applicable. I will lead with equity and humility and by me holding a Master's degree in Public Administration, I am prepared and able to lead the moment I am sworn into office. At the end of the day I’m here to represent all the stakeholders of District 74. Power is not my goal or even a thought, the economy, the unemployment and underemployment rates, the education being rendered to our children, and the safety of our children and residents are what I plan to focus on when elected. I care about the people and not dominance or money. I want to earn your vote and loyalty and in return I want you all to earn my loyalty. VOTE: Junior "JJ" Jackson District 74.
