About Me

Official Portrait

My background

           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, 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.

My top issues

There are so many issues facing Broward County, such as: lack of transparency, fiscal and financial irresponsibility, a failed bonds program, underpaid teachers and non-instructional staff, unpaid contractors, and a corroded educational curriculum called common core. In my platform, you'll find out what I stand for and why our system is failing. We must fight for a school system that puts our teachers and students first. I am committed to that effort.
