A Real Homegrown Prospect
For a lot of you, I’m sure this is the first time you’re hearing of me. I’m sure my opponents will try to use this against me, citing my lack of “experience” as a bad thing. I say it’s what makes me the best candidate. I’ve been working class my entire life. I was born, raised, and spent most of my life in New York. I lived in Harlem, I graduated from school in Harlem, and I spend my time on these streets every day. My experience is in being here at the ground level with you. I don’t just know what the average everyday Harlemite is going through, I live it alongside you. I know what needs to be done to improve your lives because it would improve my life.
But I’m more than just a common citizen. I’m also a fighter, empowered by belief. I believe that we can build a better world. I believe that how we got it doesn’t have to be the end all be all. All it takes is for someone to be willing to take the fight to this government and make them do their jobs and provide for the citizens of this city and beyond. You probably hear this a lot, but I’m one of very few people who really mean it: I WILL fight for you.
