Lezlie is a native of Springfield, where he was raised by a single mother who worked nights to provide for their family. She taught him the values of responsibility, hard work, and leadership that continue to drive him today. He is a graduate of Springfield Public Schools and Westfield State University.
Committed to serving Springfield, Lezlie is currently a middle school educator. He teaches history and incorporates racial and social justice topics into his curriculum, connecting them to his students' everyday experiences. He recently served as Deputy Campaign Manager to newly elected State Senator Adam Gomez and serves as the first Black President of the Young Democrats of Massachusetts.
Lezlie is running for Springfield City Council because Ward 3 deserves a Councilor who will be accessible, combat youth violence, and work to invest in the neighborhoods. He is ready to step up to the plate to ensure that everyone has a seat at the table.
