Many people know that Alexander runs the family business, Metropolitan Funeral Services. But let’s consider something you may not know - Alexander, 50, is a licensed and ordained Minister who has been preaching longer than he has been in the world of politics.

Although he does not pastor on a regular schedule, when he is asked to preach or teach at any church, temple or mosque he will happily accept the invitation.

Tune in to News 3 at 11 Sunday night and see how he juggles preaching and politics.
