Platform & Issues

Economic Development

Working with the County Executive I helped to bring supports to businesses and entreprenuers in underserved areas of the county.

Advantage Oakland and Business Forward are new initiatives providing resources and services to small business via embedded business consultants.

Equitable Access to County Parks and Recreation

We must ensure residents in the southern portion of the county enjoy access to the beautiful amenities available at Oakland County Parks.

Seniors, Students, Citizens alike appreciate investments that increase recreation throughout the county.

Technology Infrastructure

As a technology-lover it pains Yolanda that our community doesn't have better technology infrastructure. Some gains have been made but we have a long way to go.

Residents want to be able to access Board resolutions and ordinances. It's time to get this done.

Donate Today!

I may be the best candidate but we've got to let everyone know. Donate today, no amount is too small.
