York County Court of Common Pleas
Those that know me know that I am constantly volunteering. You would also know that I love to express my civic rights and march or protest on things I believe to be wrong or unjust. For many years, I have worked in the Office of Social Justice at the Riverside Church in NYC. With that work my civic duties was fulfilled. Since moving back to York I have been volunteering either for fun at the Strand Capital Performing Center and also with they YMCA Y-Achievers, making a difference in our youth lives by going on college tours and helping in their activities.
In response to concerns over current events, my desire to respond to civic duties and become politically active is at an all time high. On Saturday, January 21,2017, I participated in the Women’s March in Washington DC on Saturday, January 21. After the march my soul was still not settled. Well now, I am putting my mouth where my march is and am running for public office as the York County Register of Deeds.
The first thing I want to do is to make sure that accuracy and efficiency are first and foremost in that office. I have a Bachelor of Science in Business Management from York College and by December 2017 I will graduate from Penn State with a Masters’ Degree in Public Administration. Those learned skills combined with professional and volunteer experience, along with my call to serve the public make this year the perfect time for me to seek an elected office.
