What sets you apart from other candidates?

What sets me apart from most candidates I truly believe is one, me; being a black & republican, from the inner city. Why that is it’s quite simple growing up in the inner city being homeless at one point of my life, and also being a child in the PA foster care, I was able to apply my early life with Republican logic. What also sets me apart from most candidates is my track record of being bi partisan.

How do you plan to work across ideological lines to achieve shared goals?

Creating a common goals and sticking to what works, We all work for people. However for the most part I always said this, “If you want to solve a problem, let the ideas be new, and never done before.” That pushes for innovation and for to gather with your Colleagues.
