Candidate Jazmine Early
History and Evaluation of the Candidate
Jazmine Early, along with Sanaa Elias and Hiethem Choulagh, is one of three immigrant candidates on the 2015 Sterling Heights Ballot. Hailing from Colombia, she first came to the United States in 2000.
With a University degree in her home country as an Architect, Mrs. Early has worked as a Spanish language teacher since her arrival here.
Mrs. Early’s activism and eventual candidacy arose from her opposition to the LGBTQ Anti-Discrimination Ordinance of 2014. Stating that her religious views are intolerant of homosexuality, she further went on to say that if elected, she would refuse to make decisions that were contrary to her deeply held religious beliefs.
Historically, she aligned herself with the anti-immigrant stances of Verna Babula and Jackie Ryan in 2015, candidates who also did not do well in that election. Her opposition to the proposed mosque on 15 Mile Road was apparently due to her anti-Islam and anti-Sharia sentiments.
Mrs. Early is stridently anti-Council in her public statements.
