Donald's Purpose for Being In Office
When we relocated from Detroit to Indianapolis in 2005, we were excited about the opportunity to work, raise our family and be a part of this growing community. It has been a great place for my wife and I to raise our three children.
I’m running for Congress because I want the story of our district to be the story of Indiana and the entire nation. Economic growth, improving education, and promoting healthy families will take care of many of the issues we face – including rising crime rates, rising unemployment, and declining graduation rates. To achieve this, we have to put the power back in the hands of the people. I will work to make this happen.
My experience in serving the inner-city population through ministry and in various non-profit organizations has made me keenly aware of the needs and threats we face together in the Indianapolis community. We are currently contending with a declining graduation rate. In Congress, I seek to serve on the Education Committee to help improve the education of both our children and any adults left behind by falling through the cracks of a porous public school system
