I live with my brother, who is three years older than me. We live together in the High Park Apartments right next to the Highlands Golf Course. It’s only four or five blocks from where my parents and sister live. She is 16 and a junior at North Star.
i graduated from university at the start of my campaign. So I really went from student to candidate.
There are days when I will help our family business at Air Park. We have a tire warehouse business. Supply of enclosures from Central America.
At university, I studied communication. The courses I enjoyed the most were interpersonal communications, conflict resolution, and negotiation.
I am someone who can provide this background of mediation and understanding to be able to resolve some of these conflicts.
Something I really tried to learn was that President (Ronald) Reagan and President (Tip) O’Neill might disagree on politics, but they had a very similar set of values that they were able to find common ground.
I think there are senators of a different ideology from which I can learn a lot by understanding their way of approaching problems.
I wouldn’t be in this race if I didn’t think I had enough life experience. I have 23 years of experience in the neighborhood.
