“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.” With my youth and passion in our small community it will motivate and inspire the younger generation to initiate change for the better. The voice of the youth now echos to many levels in Delran, gaining assurance with community members because of repeated success and execution by the young elected officials of our town. I have had a strong community presence ever since I was a young boy, and realize that I was driven to make a difference; with that I have pushed myself to work for the greater good. It is of great honor and privilege to be one of the youngest elected officials in the State of New Jersey, and now plan to use my age as an asset towork for the residents of our town who have entrusted me to provide what is needed to educate their children and to be stewards of their hard earned money.
