I am running for City Council (9-2) because now more than ever, Memphis needs a public servant who will truly represent all of SuperDistrict 9. As a proven consensus-builder, I pledge to bring progressive solutions to improve public safety, education, neighborhoods and transportation for everyone in our city. I will support policies that allow workers to thrive and businesses to flourish, upholding our values and uplifting our communities. I will build trust and engagement by working to make city government more transparent, accountable, and accessible for all Memphians.

I ask for your vote so that I can bring proven leadership and fresh vision to our shared challenges. A proud Christian Brothers University graduate and involved Memphian for 25 years, I have led Latino Memphis for more than a decade and have served as board member for some of the city's most respected organizations. My wife Yancy and I chose to become American citizens–one of our greatest honors–and we have three children in Memphis public schools.

Now I am ready to represent all of Super District 9 on the City Council.
