Yolanda is a deeply embedded member of the Springfield community who was inspired to run for Springfield Mayor after her son was a victim of gun violence this May and her employer was wrongfully attacked by the current Mayor. For over a decade Yolanda has been a steady voice in Springfield, advocating for community partnership, criminal justice reform, and more. Yolanda believes if community organizations, businesses, law enforcement, elected officials, and the people, come together as partners in change, Springfield will thrive. This belief stems from actual experience, work and partnerships she has built throughout the years.
