George Onuorah, a proud Democrat and immigrant, is front runner candidate for New York’s District 21 City Council position. To address the underestimated issues of the people living within the area of his representation, Onuorah is ready to take charge of District 21 and bring on radical transformation. The Council represents Lefrak City, Elmhurst, East Elmhurst, Corona, Jackson Heights, Flushing Meadow Corona Park, and La Guardia.
After serving as an esteemed public servant, Onuorah has aimed to help New York City Council District 21, which includes Jackson Heights, one of the most ethnically diverse communities in the United States, by prioritizing the racially and economically marginalized people. Onuorah serves as Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation for Sustainable Community Development, a charitable organization that provides and mobilizes resources to the marginalized and disadvantaged in various parts of the world.
His journey from working as a youth leader in his motherland, Nigeria, to submitting New York’s District 21 City Council candidacy certainly encompasses many bitter-sweet experiences and challenges he is prepared to tackle with open arms. He was instilled with the extraordinary skill of leadership since his early student life, which is proven by him leading Debating Society to overseeing student affairs as a Senior Prefect during his high school days. As a tribute to his remarkable work in Philanthropy and Political Activism, Onuorah was awarded an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from CICA University.
Now, he has decided to utilize his experiences and knowledge in improving the condition of District 21 and providing its residents with a safe, secured, and stable life. Fighting crime and maintaining public safety is one of his major priorities, helping small businesses foster. Besides, encouraging the youths of Queens in leadership, investment in education post covid and sanitation, funding senior centers are some of his prime agendas.
