Jenifer Rajkumar

Democrat for State Assembly
Vote Tuesday September 13th


Jenifer Working with Local Children
Dear Neighbors,

This is the time for the possible. I believe that local government can be a platform for innovation and inspiration. I 
am running for State Assembly to replace the Albany culture of corruption with a culture of service.  It is time to invest in a sense of collective destiny, that we are all in this together across different ethnicities, economic strata, and neighborhoods. Together, we can move forward and the 65th Assembly District can once again be a shining beacon to the entire city and state. 
In 2011, I stood on a neighborhood street corner and asked for your votes. You elected me as your district leader three times, and I have been honored to work with you and grow with you. All the way from the street corner to the State Capitol, I would be proud to serve you as your representative in Albany.  
Very Truly Yours,
Hon. Jenifer Rajkumar

“I am very proud to be supporting and endorsing Jenifer Rajkumar for reelection as DL in the 65th AD. I've known her and I've watched her and its clear that whether as a civil rights attorney working on gender discrimination cases or a grassroots community organizer, Jenifer has demonstrated time and again her ability and her interest and her willingness and her energy in building diverse coalitions to tackle community problems and to lead. I've worked with her over the last few years and I know firsthand that Jenifer is a very strong voice for families, for tenants, for education, for the community. I am proud to be supporting her today. I can think of no worthier candidate for district leader and I urge everyone to join me and support her as she runs for election as District Leader downtown, to continue serving the people so well.”


"Jenifer has been an outstanding leader for her constituency. A lot of important people are here to endorse Jenifer and to stand with her. Manhattan needs more women like Jenifer. New York State needs more women like Jenifer. Our country needs more women like Jenifer elected on the Democratic line. I stand with my community, with my fellow elected officials, with the Public Advocate, and with other members of Congress in endorsing her for re-election..."


"Her fight to preserve usable open space in the community and to save the North Cove Marina has built a permanent grassroots network to continue voicing the community's priorities and concerns to the Battery Park City Authority... ”


"Working along with community leaders in a collaborative way, she was able to persuade the MTA to restore services on the M9 bus route linking the Lower East Side to the historically underserved Battery Park City. Now that's a big thing. That wasn't easy to change. We all had to join her advocacy. We got the bus line expanded to Bellevue Hospital. She was there to fight and save it and make it happen."


"Before I was in the City Council, I was in the State Assembly. And I can tell you Jenifer Rajkumar would be a breath of fresh air in the Assembly."
