Hi there! I know this post is different than what you’re used to on this blog, but I am excited to share my good news with everyone. I am running as a Democrat for Trustee in Flint Township, Michigan. You know, the mitten shaped state. The only state where you can show people where you live at on your hand.
Here is my campaign page.
Three challenges lie ahead of me as a candidate, and if I am elected to a seat on the Flint Township Board of Trustees:
- I am a first-time candidate
- I am a minority
- I have little political experience
However, none of the above will hinder me from serving my community if I am elected.
With that being said, I would love and appreciate your support. If you know any registered voters residing in Flint, Township Michigan, then please spread the word that I am running for Trustee. Tell you family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. If they are not registered to vote, then please encourage them to get registered so they can vote Democrats across the board in the upcoming elections.
I am looking for your support on August 4, 2020. If you would like to make a small donation, then you can go here. No amount is too small and all will be truly appreciated.
Yesterday was Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. I would say that I am a day late with this blog post but I won’t. I attended Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School in Flint, Michigan. Therefore, EVERYDAY is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day to Me.
I entered every essay contest I found about in grades K-12. I won a couple of them. I was even asked to read one of my essays during the Martin Luther King, Jr. birthday celebration at my school in 6th grade. I have never been camera-shy. So speaking in front of the standing room only audience in the school’s gymnasium didn’t bother me one bit.
The best moment over the years was meeting Dr. King’s daughter, Yolanda. She delivered the keynote address at a luncheon at Mott Community College in Flint, Michigan in January 1991. Yolanda King’s voice was loud, powerful, and soulful.
Lunch took place immediately after. My mother and I were very excited to have sat at the same table as Yolanda during lunch. Yolanda had such a beautiful smile and talked to everyone seated at the table while we were eating.
When I told Yolanda my name (La Cracha pronounced Lacrisha), she smiled and said my name was beautiful. She also told me how pretty I was. After I thanked her, I turned and looked at my mother who was standing right behind me. Her eyes lit up like a Christmas tree. I am sure mine did the same!
To be honest, I wasn’t going to post anything about M.L. King Day. I was looking through some old pictures a few hours ago and came across the one above. Besides my mother and siblings, no one else has seen this picture. Until now.
Yolanda King transitioned into Heaven, but she will always be one of the greatest women I have ever met.
