The final results are now in, and we didn’t make it.
While this is not the outcome we expected, I felt it was important for me to once again express my gratitude to you.
I am proud of the honest campaign that I ran. This campaign was never about me. It was about the citizens of Trenton. You invested in a candidate who was respectful, transparent, and wanted to put the needs of others before his own.
Your belief in me allowed me to stand-up and participate in our democracy in an intimate way, and for that I will always be grateful.
Thank you for encouraging me on this journey. Thank you for investing in my campaign, so I could embark on this journey.
While receiving 2,282 votes didn’t get me elected, I remain committed to helping our city rise and be a Capital City that is vibrant and full of hope. I won’t be able to serve Trentonians as a member of City Council, but I will continue to be a champion for Trenton, and I will continue to L.E.A.D. (Listen. Engage. Advocate. Deliver.), working with stakeholders to lift Trenton together, because Trenton matters.
Earlier this week, I placed an order for 24 trophies to donate to an Urban Basketball League that is hoping to reduce gun violence in our neighborhoods by encouraging the youth to shoot hoops, and not guns. Tomorrow, I will once again host a bi-partisan Trenton LGBTQ+ Networking event that brings together people who live, work, and play in Trenton to socialize and meet new friends. I continue to meet with leaders to advocate for Trenton, and for resources that will help our Capital City rise.
Congratulations and Godspeed to the Councilpersons-elect. The task before them is not an easy one, and I know they will do their best for Trenton.
Again, thank you for supporting me on this incredible journey.
