Effective immediately, I am suspending my campaign for US House Representative for FL District 11.
Several serious personal events have occurred over the last few weeks and my family needs have been brought to the forefront. Because of this, I will not be able to devote the time and energy to the campaign that the voters in the District 11 deserve.
I would like to thank all my volunteers and supporters who truly have gone above and beyond to make what we have accomplished possible.
While this month should be celebrated year round, because black history is American history, we have seen highlights reflecting on the contributions that people of color have made in this world. We had the pleasure of sharing the inventions, writings, explorations, musical advances and activism from these creative and empowering individuals.
We hope that the recounts of their lives have inspired everyone to take active roles in their communities, and work hard in life to ach...ieve their goals. Specifically to the black community, I encourage you all to dream of accomplishing whatever you set your mind to. Through representation, celebration, and acceptance, anything possible. This world is as much yours as it is anyone’s. I look forward to seeing the work of the upcoming generations and helping in any and all ways possible.
For the final time of the year, happy Black History Month! Even though the month has come to an end, we will continue to champion the advancements and work people of color do around the world.
