MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- Derickson K. Lawrence will formally announce his candidacy for the U.S. House of Representatives at St. Paul's Church on Saturday, March 5.
“The nation is looking for alternatives to career politicians and establishment politics, and our 16th Congressional District is no exception,” said Lawrence.
Lawrence has 30 years of management consultant experience with companies such as KPMG and the Gartner Group. He is currently engaged in two small business ventures with national footprints and one global venture.
“With bold leadership, new ideas, and tangible results, guided by the voice of the people, we can lift the economy of the region, stand up for criminal justice reforms, slow the growth of college tuition and student debt, and restore an effective voice in the halls of Congress," said Lawrence. "So, I ask you to stand with me on Saturday.”
Lawrence will speak at 10:30 a.m.
