Vote for Jenifer Rajkumar on Tuesday, September 10th
I am running for City Council because our great Lower Manhattan district needs a strong, progressive, active councilmember who will be a leader. I am running to stand up for our community even when it is hard, and to bring energetic, participatory, inclusive leadership to all the diverse neighborhoods in our district.
I am a civil rights lawyer, a Stanford Law School graduate, a proud New Yorker, and a local elected District Leader in Lower Manhattan. I was first elected in 2011 with nearly 70% of the vote.
I am also the daughter of immigrants who came to New York from India with just $300 and one suitcase. Through hard work and the opportunity the U.S. provided, my family was able to thrive. To honor the promise of our country, I have dedicated my life to social justice.
I am running for City Council to lead on affordable housing, responsible development, and ensuring that our children have the best education possible.
I hope you find this website informative about the issues that I care about, my background, and my vision for Lower Manhattan. I am also directly accessible to you at Jenifer4council@gmail.com, or 917-690-0891. Please be in touch so we can build a vision for Lower Manhattan together.
I am looking forward to working with you to revitalize and uplift our neighborhoods.
Yours in All Things,
C: (917) 690-0891
