Why I'm Running for Mayor
I’m a social worker of almost 30 years, City Councilor, and proud Girl Dad. I’ve dedicated my life to public service and mentoring young people throughout Worcester.
On the City Council, I led the fight for safe schools with the necessary resources, and successfully brought sports back to middle schools. I fought against increasing residential property taxes, and advocated for a transparent and accountable Government, especially when it came to taxpayers' hard earned dollars.
The same old leadership is failing. Housing prices are skyrocketing, crime and mental health are major problems, and there is too much focus on downtown and not enough on the local economic hubs in neighborhoods across the city. I’m running for Mayor so that you and I can write the next chapter in Worcester’s history and build a City that is safe, sustainable, and affordable. I humbly ask for your vote on November 7th.

“I’ve worked with Khrystian to create and run programs that give kids structured activities to keep them out of trouble. I’m supporting Khrys because he knows firsthand what our neighborhoods need in order to be safe.”
Khrystian King: A Lifetime of Advocacy
Khrystian has been an advocate for Worcester’s children, youth and families his entire life - beginning as a student leader of an anti-drug program at Holy Name. After losing three friends to gun violence, Khrystian has dedicated his career to helping local families rise beyond poverty and violence - from his work in child protection to his nearly 20 years leading the Crompton Park Summer Basketball program.
A first generation American, Khrystian graduated from Wheaton College with a degree in Sociology and Psychology, and went on to receive a Masters Degree in Social Work from Simmons College and a Public Management & Leadership Certificate from the Sawyer Business School at Suffolk University.

“I’ve known Khrys forever and I’m supporting him because I trust he’ll fight
for people like me. Khrys knows that government needs to do more to
support seniors and veterans.“
