I’m grateful for the incredible support during my re-election campaign. While I didn’t secure victory, your time, donations, and energy meant the world to me. Thank you for believing in me these last four years, working tirelessly to make a difference and continue to move Newark forward. Thank you to my family and friends for all the support and encouragement they’ve provided over my time campaigning, it did not go unnoticed. I wish the best of luck to the successful At Large Council Members of your Newark City Council. This isn’t goodbye, it’s see you later.
