Elyshya is the backbone of our campaign. She has over 20+ years of organizing experience here in Kansas City, and got her degree in the streets, not the class room. Elyshya has worked with groups like ACORN, SEIU, Jobs With Justice, and KC Tenants. Her specialty is canvassing, particularly in areas most politicians would NEVER go. When Elyshya has your back, she has your back 110%.
We are so grateful to have her expertise, passion and spirit on our team. She could be anywhere else, get paid plenty more, but she is in this race for the long run.
