Yvette Clarke attended Oberlin College from 1982 to 1986, (see: Biographical Directory). She also attended Medgar Evers (a better cred for many). She followed her mother, NYC Councilmember Una Clarke to the City Council (2002-2007) Yvette lost her bid for Congress in 2004 but stuck with it and became a member of U.S. Congress in 2007. She has been in office for ten years. What is her record of accomplishment? Is change needed? You must decide, and to do that you have to vote.In 2018 a challenge was made that will make the June Primary interesting.
Have a look at the challenger (HERE). If it isn’t time for a change in your mind at least support a spirited primary campaign.
Yvette Clarke has a YouTube Channel. Please subscribe, she will be encouraged to develop this important resource. The following selections represent Yvette at her best in a message to her base, a reflection on the T-party with Brooklyn Savvy (empowering women) and at her star-struck worst when Steve Colbert did his “bit” on members of Congress many years ago. Since then, he has changed sides.

Brooklyn Savvy is a Talk Show that focuses on the issues of today, and their impact on women. Watch their trailer, it is excellent. A 30 minutes chat with Clarke in 2014:

Hey, Yvette, it is OK, the bit with our sister Marcia Fudge (D-OH) was LOL and she’s nailed him with that “who is this fool” look and then making him a member of the CBC. So here goes, and no one will pull your leg again. We can count on that, n’est c’pas?.
Again if it isn’t time for a change in your mind at least support a spirited primary campaign. Find your Election District (here) or use the Work you District link under Vote – 2018 menu.
