My Brothers of Alpha East!
By the time you receive this correspondence, the Thanksgiving holiday will have come and gone, and I hope that you were able to love on your family and /or friends, as my family was able to do; whether through a geographic visit, or via any number of social platforms:
And for those who may be missing their friends or family at this time? I pray for your continued healing…. If you need to talk? Please call or text me directly: 860-558-5118. YOU ARE MY BROTHER…. And I am willing to be here for you.
Without a doubt, it continues to be an honor to be before you as a candidate for the 29th Eastern Region Vice President! I am extremely excited to bring many years of commitment, of learning, and of inclusive leadership to our Brotherhood, as I continue to seek to earn your vote to hold such an office. Now more than ever, as we celebrate our Founder’s Day week! ‘00000000000000000006!!!
As our Campaign continues to connect with the Brothers in our Region, your thoughts, opinions, concerns, and feedback, continue to resonate with me. To that end? We will continue to engage Brothers at every level in our Region, as we look to help Brothers know that a vote for Steven King, Jr. for Eastern Region Vice President? It WILL be a vote to execute the plan to how we as a Region specifically and a Fraternity in general, we will Advance as ONE.
We will continue to communicate through our personal 1-on-1’s, candidate forums, tailgates, barbershop conversations, that the “Alpha Path” is intentional and will build on our Region’s mantra of “First of All, Leading the Way;” acknowledging that Brothers are looking for a direction and a leadership that will help us to not only Advance in spite of the present realities of the COVID-19 pandemic, but also beyond it with global growth expectations. All of us College AND Alumni Chapters will embark upon the opportunity right in front of us, to REFLECT. REFOCUS. REPURPOSE. In doing so, TOGETHER, we will again shape the future on the basis of the past. We will lead the way to an Alpha Path that honors our most celebrated legacy and accomplishments, and signals the way forward to our bright future.
Please know, that as you digest the Alpha Path, you will continue to encounter outcomes that are measurable. And in being measurable, you may hold me accountable. We will work together with all 7 Districts, to fully step out and execute our Fraternity’s Mission Statement in multiple ways; which can be seen in writing via www.AdvancingAsONE.com. I encourage all Brothers to compare all of the candidate platforms, recognizing that written goals/platforms have power and are more likely to be achieved, than those which are not.
Brothers, our messaging will not change, as the Alpha Path is clear. However, it can only be achieved if we all look to Advance as ONE. ONE body, and ONE Brotherhood, united in thought and action, confident in the merits of this Alpha Path which embody the Mission Statement of our Fraternity. Realizing that our great Alpha Phi Alpha is not a group of clannish men, but a body of men who look to HOLD ALPHA HIGH – TOGETHER, and who will continue to lead from the front….remembering that the sun ALWAYS rises in the East.
I look forward to our engagements as we REFLECT. REFOCUS. REPURPOSE – Advancing as ONE.
