Yenni is running for Worcester’s District 5 City Council Seat to fight for a more modern, equitable, and accessible Worcester. She obtained a degree in Electronic Game and Interactive Development from Champlain College in 2012 and worked as a project manager. She fell in love with Worcester's history, character, and potential after buying a multifamily home and moving to Newton Square in 2013 with her husband, a lifelong Worcester resident.
She opened Next Level Pet Care in 2014, which closed due to the pandemic in March 2020, so she understands the struggles other small business owners go through. As a disabled person and member of the LGBTQ+ community, she believes the city must do more than show lip service to minority groups.
Throughout her entire life, Yenni has always been a forward-thinking, data-oriented, problem solver. As a game developer and small business owner, she has used this trait to her advantage and she believes that our council needs these traits now more than ever.
There are great opportunities for the city to prepare for the rapid pace of technological change and automation, improve our infrastructure, expand public transport, support our schools, and expand access to affordable housing. To best affect positive change the council must fully analyze problems, collect needed data, consult experts, and only then act on solutions with an eye toward the future. This is the mindset and expertise we need from Yenni Desroches at City Hall, so let's Move Worcester Forward together!
