“TLIP provided a lifetime experience for me in preparation for a future I can truly be thankful for. Senator Ellis’ leadership and determination to help our youth prepared me to become the youngest African-American City Council Member in the history of Georgetown, TX, and later to become Director of North Central Florida GOTV for the Gore/Lieberman and Kerry/Edwards campaigns. I am presently advisor and personal assistant to presidential candidate Rev. Jesse L. Jackson, Sr. I am a true example that TLIP was instrumental in the formative years of my career.”
