Hello,

My name is Alexa Young

I'm Sean Freeman, and I'm running as an Independent for US Congress on November 5, 2024.

I am a graduate of John Carroll University. Following graduation and a brief stint back home in Chicago, I moved back to the community I built at JCU and put down roots as a homeowner. I am the oldest of four children and the son of parents who have worked in government, education and social services. My upbringing and education have been faith filled and centered on the principles of serving others. My maternal grandparents immigrated from Ireland to find a better life for their kids and grandkids. I'd like to carry on that hope for everyone in the 11th District.    

 

I've been actively involved in local elections, including campaigning for Mayor Justin Bibb and working for a US Senate candidate. I have also had the opportunity to meet people searching and working for a better life in a variety of settings:  (1) meeting tomato farmers in Florida fighting to earn an extra penny per bushel, (3) talking with people at the US-Mexico Border and El Salvador, (4) working with Habitat for Humanity in Mississippi, (5) serving food at food pantries and homeless shelters, (6) reading and working with kids in their schools and (7) playing basketball and writing poetry with kids at the juvenile detention center to name a few.  In all these encounters, people are seeking respect, safety and the ability to care for and enjoy their family and friends. That isn't much to ask, yet it is harder to come by than it needs to be. I am thrilled anytime I can aid another, but I know I could do more. I'm running for Congress to bring the most cost effective and efficient solutions to the systemic problems we face, and renew our belief that with hard work and heart, you can achieve what you desire in our Land of the Free.
