As a black, single-parent mother Atlena West defied all odds in the best way, at the most controversial time. The cornerstone of Atlena's campaign was the Bologna sandwich. Atlena used her own government-provided cheese to fuel her campaign.
As she would canvass on foot, Atlena passed out brown paper bag lunches. Fully equipped with a slice of government cheese, two pieces of white bread, and mayonnaise, Atlena made sure you were good and full before informed.
Her campaign focused on community development, food distribution programs, and educational support for youth. Atlena West is The Ark of Refuge's Maria Montessori.
For the sacrifices, she bore and her communal contributions, she will forever be remembered through us.
WE LOVE YOU MORE ATLENA!
