Obi is political outsider and successful entrepreneur fighting to challenge the status quo and design a better future that inspires hope, healing, and courage for all Westminster residents. He is a first-generation American and the son of Nigerian immigrants, with lived experience as a survivor of childhood poverty, police brutality, and racial discrimination. Having defied great odds to achieve individual success, he knows what it’ll take to achieve community advancement.
Obi's goal is to revive city council with diversity of thought, fresh perspectives, and compassionate leadership. He will forge a new bond with residents, molding the government into a true deliberate democracy - one that empowers residents with an elevated voice representative of their needs and values. Obi will engage and empower marginalized groups to tell their stories, helping all of Westminster to learn, unlearn, and evolve as a community. He believes that if we can work together to ensure we increase the quality of life for all residents, this will result in reduced crime, increased property values, and more productive classrooms.
