My name is Dimitry Romulus, I am 32 years old I was born in Léogâne Haiti. I am running for Mayor of Léogâne, if I am elected I will be Haiti's youngest elected official. Léogâne deserves more than the usual politician; it needs a young, energetic and open-minded leader who understands the complexity and speed of change in today’s inter-connectivity environment. As Mayor, I will spearhead the collaboration, cooperation and partnership with key institutions, organizations, businesses and elected leaders throughout the country — to maximize opportunities, leverage the region’s assets and promote Léogâne at a national and international level.

I’ve decided to run for office because I am determined to transform Léogâne into a thriving city. Léogâne already has a rich tradition as a hard-working waterfront and agricultural community. It is advantageously located amid two of Haiti's most influential cities; Jacmel and Port-au-Prince. Its proximity to the international airport and the harbors of Haiti makes it an excellent location for businesses. I am fully aware of the commercial potentials that Léogâne possesses. I will adopt an aggressive business policy that will turn Léogâne into the best place to invest in Haiti. As you know, I have been actively involved in the community of Léogâne for many years. I have long worked for positive change in my town. I have made friends with people that I consider to be living legends; some of them are still here, most, sadly gone.

Today, my beloved city of Léogâne is in great peril. We have become stale and unproductive. We can and we must evolve beyond our limits, if we are going to flourish as a community. Léogâne needs an injection of fresh faces, innovators, open-minded people who can grow this community as it should. We need new people to undertake positions traditionally held by a small clique. We need to end the status quo – politics as usual and the laissez-faire attitudes. We need the enthusiasm of the youth and the wisdom of the experienced. I believe that I hold and honor both qualities and much more. There is a great opportunity in the upcoming elections for us to band together, to restore effective governance in Léogâne.

I am a leader who understands that cooperation is the thorough conviction that nobody can get there, unless everybody gets there. Thus, we cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community. Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own. I strongly believe that the prosperity of our commercial businesses; the growth of our local artisan community; the quality of life for our residents, protecting our environment and managing our resources are fundamental to our success. I also believe that our community has an extraordinary mixture of knowledge and talents. Léogâne is abundant with genuine people who have the willingness to volunteer their time and services for the betterment of the region.

As Mayor, I will implicate the use of our community members with specialized skills and knowledge to provide the Municipality with guidance on the complicated issues that are facing us in these difficult times. You can always come to me. I will listen because I firmly believe that the closer the decision-making is to those affected, the better the outcome. I am fully prepared to lead, and the hallmarks of my leadership will be teamwork, transparency and prosperity. So, join us in the upcoming elections together we can make a world of difference. It's not only a matter of can or cannot, it's a matter of will or will not. Everything is a choice, choose wisely my friends.

As you know, I have some truly awesome ideas on how to rebuild a better Léogâne, but innovation alone cannot lead us to victory. With thousands of flyers to purchase, hundreds of yard signs to order, scores of radio advertisements to place and 13 communal sections to cover, I need your support. 

I am humbly inviting you to get involved in my campaign and help cause a change in Léogâne. You can help me make a difference in Haiti by making a contribution to my campaign. I am counting on your support. I thank you for your time, attention and contribution.
