"As a lifelong resident of District 99, I have seen the District in its glory days and at its worst. I know that we have some of the most resilient, hardworking, and dedicated people in the City in this district. I want to be an advocate for District 99 and a State Representative that you can be proud of. I'm your Proud son and I'm Prepared to serve!"
