House District 28

Rep. Yusuf Hakeem (D) is new in 2019. He serves on the House Commerce Committee, Banking & Investments Subcommittee, Local Committee, and Elections & Campaign Finance Subcommittee. Rep. Hakeem co-sponsored one bill that was favored by TLRC and did little else to earn leadership points. His vote score does not recommend him to the freedom-preserving principles on which TLRC bases it's positions. We hope to work with Rep. Hakeem in 2020 to forge a good reciprocal relationship going forward and to improve those results.
