The City of Plainfield is one of the most diverse and culturally rich cities in
Union County. Plainfield is home to numerous Historic neighborhoods,
parks, businesses, apartment complexes, and single-family homes. These
are many examples of the population being as diverse as its landscape. As
an elected official, I will serve my constituents by building strong
relationships and being present in the community I serve. I will also host
informal conversations and use social media to keep my constituents
informed on the progress of Plainfield. An elected official’s job does not
adhere to a typical work schedule. I make it a point to be available to my
constituents as needed. Another focus area for the work I do is community
service. I attend community programs, church services, and other events
that afford me the opportunity to meet, engage with, and serve my
While the legislative and executive branches hold two equally important
yet different responsibilities, it is my job to create seamless connections
between the branches. I will form positive and fruitful connections with
both branches so that all laws are beneficial to the citizens of Plainfield. I
will review all laws, complete a thorough vetting of the issues, challenge
injustices, and provide constructive feedback. I want my constituents to
know that both the legislative and executive branches focus on their best
interest. I will hold them to the appropriate standards.
I believe that reaching all the demographics in the City of Plainfield is
important because I value their presence and ever-changing needs. As a
local elected official, I will use various forms of communication to reach the
larger community such as newspapers, social media, online forums,
webinars, and in person opportunities. I will meet residents’ needs by using
these different platforms and encouraging fruitful feedback. As an elected
official, it is my responsibility to remain an advocate for all residents as the
demographics change. Ensuring that the needs of a changing community
are met is the best way to keep Plainfield moving forward.
