Office
Running for State Senate, New York, 23rd District

Biography

I was born in the Bronx and moved to Staten Island, and this is where I feel most at home. Growing up in a single parent household, I worked hard to put myself through college - and I graduated with a degree in Political Science. I am a working class girl and currently employed as a legal secretary.

It was a natural decision for me to join other grassroots candidates in opposing the IDC Democrats who were elected as Democrats, but empower Republicans in the Senate. Our communities need true Democrats who do not rely on corporate donors, and who fight for the working class. We care about communities! #NoTrumpDems #NoIDC.

The residents of District 23 deserve a strong advocate in Albany. That's why my slogan is Jasi4all of us. I am here for you and I invite you to join our campaign and help make District 23 a vibrant, safe home for all our families.

Priorities

Health Care

The New York Health Act will provide comprehensive healthcare for all New Yorkers. In eliminating insurance industry profits and wasteful administration costs, New York State will save $45 billion a year, also reducing property and school taxes. Instead of having to negotiate administrative tasks, health care providers will be able to focus on patients, instead of what insurance policies do or do not cover. The NYHA has passed the Assembly for three years in a row, and needs one more Senate Co-Sponsor. As your State Senator, I will be that Co-Sponsor: to make Sustainable Healthcare for All New Yorkers a reality.

Environment/Climate Change Protections

We must invest in protections from Climate Change, and a renewable energy program, which will bring 21st century Green Jobs to our communities. This is why I fully support The New York State Climate and Community Protection Act, and will work to pass it into law.

Public Education

Currently, our public schools are under threat by charter schools syphoning off public funds for their exclusionary practices: They do not include children with diverse learning styles. Tax dollars belong to Public Schools, not privatized charter schools. Neither do we want to raise a generation of fill-in-the boxes Standardized Test Takers. We want to raise children who think creatively and critically. Our children are our future.

Women's Rights

It's time for New York State Senate Legislators to codify the Reproductive Health Act - (the RHA). The RHA should be enacted into law. There are many factors that affect pregnancy and maternal health choices; health history and risk factors, income, marital/partner status and the strength of a supportive family and community or the absence of this. A woman's choice should be decided between herself and her doctor.

Criminal Justice Reform

No person should sit in jail because they cannot make cash bail. Too many low-level nonviolent offenders who are no threat to their communities are being warehoused in our prisons at taxpayers' expense. This is devastating to their families and exorbitantly costly to our state: $60,000. per year, per inmate. Our young people who are struggling with opioid and other drug addictions must be provided with comprehensive rehabilitative care, and training for career opportunities -- not dead end punishment.

Immigration Reform

As a proud Afro-Latina, I am deeply connected to our immigrant communities. These communities are precious cultural and economic resources for our district and state. They contribute $50 billion to New York State’s economy. Hardworking business owners and families should not be interrogated about their status, nor should they be detained because of questions about documentation. The important work of our public safety officials can only be carried out with the trust and support of the communities they serve. That is why I will fully support the Liberty and Dream Act Senate bills as your state senator. Now, more than ever, we need to rise up for our immigrant neighbors and reassure them that they are an important component of the communities we all belong to.

Vulnerable Communities

I am deeply connected to the vulnerable communities in my district, and as your State Senator, will bring a full-throated call for action to address the critical Social and Economic Injustice Issues that exist here in 23. I will introduce and sponsor legislation that will change that landscape. Here are some of the following steps I will take to protect our communities of color and our vulnerable neighbors.
