A BALANCED APPROACH, UNWAVERING LEADERSHIP.
Elijah Manley talks about why he's the best choice for the Broward County School Board.
My name is Elijah Manley, and I'm a political activist. I was born and raised in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I am a proud graduated of Fort Lauderdale High, and I am running to be your next Representative on the Broward County School Board. I am a community organizer, educational reform activist, and a writer. I am studying political science at Broward College and will pursue a career in constitutional law. When I am not engaged in politics, I spend my time writing, helping people, organizing action, and traveling.
I believe that it is time to invest in public education, by funding the arts, special education, entertainment, and by paying our teacher more. We are struggling as a district because our school board officials are not spending taxpayer dollars wisely. As a full time board member, I will fight for fiscal transparency and lower taxes. You can count on me to ensure our schools are safe, and secure.
Here are some of the organizations I serve on:
Along with several other strong activists, we defeated fracking in Broward County.
Along with the Black Lives Matter Alliance, I have been on the front lines side-by-side with other activists, fighting for police reform.
Organized communities in support of Tuition free college and education.
I am a licensed professional in the life insurance industry, and specialize in underwriting insurance policy. I am currently seeking an investments license, and a real estate license.
Some people say that I am too young to lead. However, my experience as a recent graduate of the Broward County Public School System gives me the insight into what needs to be done for our schools. Neither of my opponents have been in school for the past 25+ years.
The truth is, we all have life experiences that we can bring to the table. As a survivor of rape, I can understand the plight of students who face sexual violence. As someone who grew up with a single mom and less fortunate, I will be able to make decisions with an understanding of its impact.
