Born in Flatbush and raised by a single Jamaican mother, I know the struggle of working families in this city and the obstacles that immigrants face on a daily basis. I was educated in the New York City public school system and has seen firsthand the lack of resources in his community. This inspired him to pursue social and economic justice and he has dedicated his life to giving back to the community that nurtured him.

The Latest from Brian

Proud to endorse my mentor, big brother and friend @kevinparkernyc for New York City Comptroller. I first met Sen. Parker shortly after he was re-elected to his second term as Senator of the 21st Senatorial district. He immediately took me under his wings; and taught me both the power of politics ...and policy. I don’t think I would have been as successful in my career without his consistency and guidance. At a time where our city needs economic justice, I can’t think of a stronger candidate who will bring passion, experience and advocacy. Over the next two weeks, I will be doing everything I can to help him become our Cities fiscal watchdog. #teamparker #kevinparker #nycpolitics #localelections
