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

"Rajkumar has the right priorities, right temperament, and a clear vision for getting things done - accomplishments to make a positive difference in people's lives."




“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.”
