Congressman Mondaire Jones Announces Endorsements for Democratic Candidates in Westchester and Rockland Counties



 NYACK, NY – Congressman Mondaire Jones announced his formal endorsement of 80 candidates across New York’s 17th Congressional District ahead of the November 2nd General Election. The full slate can be found below.

“The last year has made clear the critical role local elected officials play in enacting and implementing federal policies here at home,” said Jones. “Now, more than ever, we need leaders at every level of government committed to doing the hard work to deliver for the people of Westchester and Rockland Counties. This incredible slate of candidates — some of whom are running for office for the first time, others who have been hard at work for years — represent the leadership our communities need and deserve as we work to Build Back Better. I’m thrilled to endorse them and I look forward to partnering with them to deliver for all of our constituents.”

Since his swearing-in in January, Jones has been a leading voice in Washington. He was elected unanimously by his colleagues as Freshman Representative to House Democratic Leadership, and he was appointed a Deputy Whip of the Congressional Progressive Caucus and Co-Chair of the LGBTQ Equality Caucus. He serves on the House Judiciary, Education and Labor, and Ethics Committees, where he has established himself as a leader on issues of democracy reform, civil rights, child care, and climate. In April, Jones launched his leadership committee, Policy is Personal PAC, which has endorsed three candidates in federal races.

Clarkstown Councilman Patrick Carroll Announces Candidacy for NYS Assembly District 96



NEW CITY, NY – Town of Clarkstown Councilman Patrick Carroll announces his candidacy for New York State Assembly District 96, to replace Assemblyman Ken Zebrowki who recently announced that he wasn’t seeking re-election. Councilman Carroll currently represents Ward 4, which encompasses Bardonia, New City, Nanuet, Spring Valley and West Nyack. He lives in Bardonia with his wife Natalie and their four daughters: Madelyn, Lily, Paige and Hailey. He is a graduate of Northeastern University School of Law and Wesleyan University, a licensed attorney, and currently works as an Administrative Law Judge for New York State.

“After speaking with community leaders, I have decided to seek election to the New York State Assembly. Filling my good friend Ken Zebrowski’s shoes will be no easy task, as he has been an outstanding and effective advocate for Rockland families. I hope to build on Ken’s substantial achievements and will work to protect the suburban quality of life that exists in Haverstraw, Nyack and Clarkstown.” said Councilman Carroll.

Since his announcement, Carroll has received key endorsements from democratic leaders from retired Legislator Harriet Cornell and Legislator Beth Davidson.

“When you knock about 3,000 doors alongside someone, you get to know them pretty well—what they believe in, what they stand for, whom they fight for. While I am so grateful to Ken Zebrowski for his 17 years of admirable and effective service as our Assemblyman, I am thrilled to endorse my friend Clarkstown Councilman Patrick J. Carroll for AD-96. I stand ready to knock another 2-3,000 doors to secure your election, Pat—and I know no one will work harder to help Dems up and down the ticket in November!” said Legislator Beth Davidson.
