Education: I am pursuing a
bachelor’s degree in
 Accounting. I have a newfound passion in politics andhope to expand myknowledge with a graduatedegree in Political Science.Currently, I manage anauto repair shop and ambusiness partners in arestaurant and car wash.Thanks to my parents Iwas raised with a strongwork ethic. I startedworking at the age 14. Ihave had many differentoccupations ranging fromblue color work tomanagement.Offering a clean, safe andaffordable City.Providing well managedand maintainedinfrastructure throughproactive and reactiveservices, excellentstewardship of publicassets and a variety of cultural, recreational andentertainment opportunitiesthat enhance the quality of life.Creating and maintainingeffective partnerships topromote employmentopportunities and individualand business success. Advancing a model of professionalism thatensures the delivery of highquality products andservices, continuouslyimproves efficiency andremoves barriers for futuredevelopment.Rental property in Dearbornis a big topic. With manyhomes being rented outacross our city, comesvarious changes in our social climate, one of thebiggest differencesimpacted by rental propertycan be reflected on incometax rates, occupancyinspections and other costson the city. Many citizens or homeowners currently ownhomes and rent them outundocumented. By doing sothey are side stepping manylaws. I will workprogressively to auditcurrent deeds records andtarget individuals who arecircumventing these laws, inorder to correct the titling of these homes and bringthese property owners toproper justice.
