Committee Assignments


I recall my childhood in the west African nation of The Gambia where most of my days were spent tending livestock in the bush and helping my nomadic parents. Later, I attend a "western" school which required a six mile hike each way. I learned to read, speak English, and most importantly, that there was an exciting and unknown world that I should explore. As a college student, I was active in the movement against the nation's dictator and I soon knew that I had to leave my home and emigrate to the US for a viable future. Now, twenty years later, through the help of many people, I am, by most measures, a "success." I am an IT Project Manager at American Family Insurance. My wife, Fatou and I own a new house on the northside. I am in my third term as a member of the Madison Common Council. I have attained what many believe to be the American Dream. In my second term, I was honored to be elected as the Council President. As the Council President, I had the opportunity to work across the city, especially in the north and east areas of the city that comprise the 48th District.
