It is time for elected officials to start putting people first!
The only way to accomplish that goal is to promote Godly principles! We can elect the most gifted, talented, and attractive individuals to office, but without promoting Godly principles, we will continually come up lacking. In fact we will spend more time and energy trying to remove these individuals from office, than we used getting them elected. When I say Godly principles, I mean being honest, truthful, treating others as we want to be treated, and being people of integrity.
For our government to be successful, Godly principles must be upheld. That is why I am asking for your support in the November election. First, I am asking for your prayers. Second, I am asking for your financial support. And third, I am asking for your support as a volunteer in this campaign. Thank you, and let's start putting people first again!

In his own words: When I was 14, my older brother was killed. I had no one to look up to. I wanted to help--my neighborhood was my family--but felt completely powerless.
Neighbors grew older, my parents feared the worst, and community involvement was at an all time low. All the Sunday school classes, bible studies and church revivals I spent my days immersed in had no answers for my generation. How could I help my generation, who has no young leaders and no one to inspire them, find their footing and their voice? That question has, in large part, driven me over the past 15 years. Looking for answers has taken me on a journey in military intelligence, biblical counseling, and public speaking, working and volunteering across various sectors including community service and education.
The search has fueled my creative endeavors, inviting me to seek out ways to bring hope to a lost generation. It has only been in the past few years that one answer to the question has revealed itself: Meet Lawrence "I am excited to run for City Council.
