By BBN Staff: Today aspiring councilor candidate, Deannie Requena issued a statement informing the public that there is no inappropriate video (s) or picture (s) circulating of her.
Requena says that the video circulating is “senseless” and will not hold her down.
“The mastermind behind the ad gathered an interview I did as the Youth Deputy Mayor humbly introducing myself, attached it to another candidate’s interview aiming to destroy his character, and inserting a picture that had absolutely nothing to do with me. Unfortunately, being so young and a threat — they targeted the youngest female candidate as they saw the positive reflection of how effective the Youth Shadow Council is,” Requena said.
Requena says that she is on a positive journey to represent young people at the table of decision making.
She says that she hopes to inspire many more to join the political arena.
Requena thanked the Special Envoy, the National Women’s Commission, the People’s United Party, and the UWG for their support and guidance.
