• Over the next 2 decades, New York City’s senior population is expected to grow by 50%. And our seniors are healthier and more active than ever. As Chair of the Aging Committee, Jessica has the experience to lead the charge as Borough President to make NYC a more age-friendly city for both active and homebound older New Yorkers.

  • Jessica graduated from Stuyvesant High School, is a public school mom, and is passionate about public education. She personally oversaw the approval of over 20,000 public school seats across the city and was instrumental in opening five new school buildings on the East Side.

  • At a time when reproductive freedom is under attack all across America, Jessica has been recognized by the New York Times for writing landmark legislation to protect women's health and their right to choose.

  • Jessica is running for Manhattan Borough President because the borough is becoming less and less affordable for middle class and working class families. She understands that the borough has to grow and evolve in a way that protects the character and diversity of our neighborhoods.

  • Jessica has secured funding for three waterfront parks in Manhattan and wrote laws to create a public space recycling program, textile recycling program, and to make playgrounds safer. She also authored a bill to protect our drinking water from hydrofracking.
