Great news in the City of Hawthorne! I am proud to announce that the City of Hawthorne’s employees are supporting me to be the next Mayor of Hawthorne.

They trust in my ability to turn the economic situation around in our City along with bringing integrity and transparency to the Mayor’s office. Thank you HMEA!
I would like to thank Hawthorne Councilman Gary Parsons for his endorsement of my campaign Mayor of Hawthorne. He served our community proudly and is a symbol of integrity and transparency for our city government. I am proud to say that he served as my mentor as I became involved in City leadership. We both share the belief that community empowerment starts with strong neighborhood associations. I am proud to have his support.
