Endorsement for Mondaire Jones for Congress NY 17

The Democrats Abroad Hispanic Caucus hereby proudly endorses Mondaire Jones For Congress NY 17

Mondaire was born to a young, single mother at Nyack Hospital and raised in the working-class Village of Spring Valley, which is in Rockland County.  Life wasn’t easy, but the Jones family managed. He went on to revive the Spring Valley NAACP Youth Council and at 19 was elected chair of a committee on the NAACP’s National Board of Directors.  After college, Mondaire served in the Obama Administration in the Office of Legal Policy at the Department of Justice where the slow pace of judicial confirmations showed him what can happen when Democrats in Congress allow Republicans to block progress instead of fighting tooth-and-nail for the American people. 

Mondaire has a passion for helping his community.  The issues he will address run from the Green New Deal, to Medicaid for all, to minimum wages and housing issues.  He has the backing of the progressive wing of the party, including Sen. Bernie Sanders, Sen. Elizabeth Warren and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.Jones.  

NY 17 in the Hudson Valley is made up of Rockland Country and Central and Northern Westchester.  An area that really needs someone like Mondaire to fight for bold, progressive policies that will help everyday people.
