You may ask yourself, " Why is Edwin Santana running for State Representative of the 192nd Legislative District?

The answer is simple: He has a vision to revitalize our community with new business development, accessible educational resources, and cultural and social programming that will make the 192nd a model for small business growth and community development.

As an educator, He has successfully changed the lives of many students. However, the classroom could not facilitate his vision for effective transformation in young people’s lives. As the vision grew, Edwin went on to start his own community based organization. Unlike the classroom, The vision has not outgrown this community, It has only expanded to include all students, their parents and caretakers, and the entire community in which we live.

As your state representative, He will be able to impact change at state level to create opportunities and legislation that will revitalize this community while bringing us all closer together.
