WHY I'M RUNNING
"As a proud son of Mount Vernon, progressive, and small business owner, organizer, I have seen what years of infighting and recycling of the same antiquated ideas have done to the city I love. We cannot afford to remain stagnant.
I’m running as a Democrat in the 13th Legislative District to give a seat at the table to an entire generation that feels unheard and disengaged - as a practical progressive - because we must move forward together. Our opportunity is now."
Tyrae Woodson-Samuels brings a record of a hands-on government, activist, and business experience to a campaign that promises to pursue a “practical progressive” agenda for the county.
Tyrae Woodson-Samuels believes in supporting Mount Vernon's small business community in every way possible. He will work on the county level to provide a recovery plan for businesses that suffered through the COVID-19 Pandemic.
