• “We're all ready to do our part”

    "I have been an Obama supporter from the beginning. I relate to President Obama because we both have a public servant’s heart. The President didn’t run off and get some big-time corporate job when he got out of school. He came right here, to the South Side, to help the down and out rise up. I try to do that with my salon.

    "On Saturdays, my salon is packed and we always talk about President Obama, the upcoming election, and his accomplishments. People want to help, they want to get involved. We are so proud that he is our president. My customers realize history is being written right now. It’s happening as we speak and we’re all ready to do our part."
