|Andy L. King|
& Youth Empowerment Leader
Over the past 25 years, I have been investing my time with our youth in the district to help them grow and develop, and partnered this endeavor with the seniors in the community to help close the gap between generations. This commitment inspired me to found the Bronx Youth Empowerment Program –YEP. Being elected to the 12th Councilmanic District will allow me to advocate for more resources and much needed services for our community. Whether we live in Co-op City, Edenwald, Gun Hill, Eastchester, and Baychester, Tilden, The Surrey, Boston Secor, Hillside, Olinville or any part of the 12th district, we are affected by the same issues ( e.g., lack of real affordable housing, safety, economic stability, and the need for quality teen/youth programs).
With my 30 years of volunteer work, I have established quality working relationships with the Clergy, Senior Centers, Tenant Associations, NYPD, schools and many community and civic organizations. My experience as a community organizer for Local 1199SEIU has given me the opportunity to participate in the progressive charge against the inequities in the healthcare system. Furthermore, as a former NYC Caseworker and member of DC 37-LOCAL371, I understand the needs of families.
Presently, we are laying the foundation for who will serve our families and neighbors in City Hall. I believe that with your help, I can be elected as your next City Council representative for our district when the opportunity arise. I do hope you share my vision and I am counting on your support. Your contribution to my campaign will be an investment in all our future.
Thank you in advance for your support and together we can create brighter tomorrows.
Candidate for City Council, District 12
