Upcoming "Coffee" Hours

December coffee hour is rescheduled to December 22.
Harper Woods Public Library - Third Mondays of every month at 5:30 p.m.

Due to construction at the St. Clair Shores Library, coffee hours have been discontinued there. I'm looking for a new "coffee hour" location in St. Clair Shores. Suggestions welcome!
Detroit constituents, I attend neighborhood meetings; please check with your community's President for dates and time.
Check back here in the new year for "pop-up" coffee hours and community conversations in 2024.
Knowledge. Experience. Leadership
As a longtime resident of this District, a Harper Woods resident, a former Detroiter, and having grown up in Macomb County, I understand the histories of our communities and the challenges we have faced over the years. There have been wrongs that need to be made right and good we need to keep, and foundations we need to build.
I know from experience how local and State governments work. As a member of Harper Woods City Council for almost eight years, I learned how legislation directly affects power and resources and equitable impact on communities.
Throughout my life I’ve had the privilege of working or volunteering with a diversity of people and sharing stories and truths about our lives. These experiences coupled with my knowledge of municipal government give me particular insight and clarified my understanding of good governance. I campaigned for office to ensure equitable state legislation and positive successful representation.
Good leadership is about listening to and collaborating with the people you serve. Let me know what I can do for you!
