Working for Us
Alex is the 3rd oldest of four children and calls the great city of Taylor his home. Growing up, Alex's parents instilled the values he promotes today: the importance of hard work, honesty, and commitment to community.
Alex was first elected to the Taylor City Council in November 2013, becoming the youngest and first person of color elected in Taylor’s history. Alex was re-elected to the City Council in 2017. As the highest vote-getter, Alex served as the City Council Chairman. Before being elected to City Council, he worked for former State Representative Rashida Tlaib as a Legislative Aide. He assisted in the everyday operations of her Detroit Service Center, which is where he found his passion for public service.
Following Alex's experience in state government, he worked as the Campaign Coordinator for Rep. Tlaib’s re-election campaign, helping her reach a victory of over 93% of the vote in the general election. Alex then went on to serve as a Legislative Assistant to the Detroit City Council. Working for City Council, he worked directly with residents to solve everyday problems they needed resolved. Following his experience with municipal government, Alex served as Director of Constituent Relations for State Representative Stephanie Chang in the Michigan Legislature for 4 years.
Alex attended the University of Michigan - Dearborn and Baker College, earning a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science and Associate’s degree in Business Management, respectively.
In November of 2018, Alex was elected State Representative for Michigan's 12th House District. In January of 2019, Alex was sworn in as State Representative and appointed to the committees on Agriculture, Local Government/Municipal Finance, and Regulatory Reform. Alex is now running for re-election to continue his service to the residents of Taylor, Romulus, and Van Buren Township.
