His announcement came this morning. We hear that his decision to run for public office is not a direct result of his shooting, but the killing of 17-year-old Antwon Rose II back in June. Following the shooting, Leon received his political awakening.
He told The Incline, “I’m tired of protesting and showing up at community meetings where the decisions are already made. They hear our voices but they’re not listening,” he said. “So I’m going to take my seat at the table so I can be the voice on the inside speaking for those on the outside.”
