Nathaniel is running for Palatine Township Trustee because he believes in the need for good governance and is dedicated to standing up for economic and social justice for the people of Palatine Township.
Nathaniel has a long record of political organizing and government service. He served as State Representative Mark Walker’s District Office Director where he worked daily to ensure the Representatives constituency was well served by state government. His work in political organizing has given him a deep understanding of community engagement and active mobilization of people and their power.
Nathaniel is committed to listening to scientists and believes that during these challenging times of COVID-19 the stark realities of our institutions have been highlighted and the deep economic and social injustices made worse. The need for representatives who listen to science and prioritize community health is apparent and the long neglect for community health both economic and social has borne out stale fruit. Good governance, over the long term, is vital to battling the current and future crises. Nathaniel believes that that good governance must start here, at home, in Palatine Township.
