Amidst a crowd of elated voters and elected officials, Robert Jackson was sworn in as State Senator at a community ceremony held at City College’s Great Hall on Sun., Jan. 13th.
“I will stand up to the governor and anyone else that’s denying our children the right for education under the law, NYS law; [and] anyone that’s going to try to hold back the moving of the rent laws that impact over a million people. I will stand up for, fighting to make sure that everyone is entitled to universal healthcare.” - Robert Jackson
“Robert Jackson is a tireless fighter for progressive values, and is the kind of courageous leader we need to stand up to the hate and extremism of the Trump administration,” said Congressman Jerry Nadler. “Robert has worked hard to make a real difference and he's already proven he can take on powerful interests to protect New Yorkers. He’s fought with passion, integrity and determination to fully fund our public schools, protect tenants and small businesses and to promote equality, justice and fairness – and we know he is on our side without a doubt. I’m proud to endorse Robert Jackson for State Senate today.”
Praising his integrity, energy and proven record, I.A.T.S.E Local One, the country’s premier stagehand union and the oldest Entertainment Local in the United States, today endorsed former City Councilmember Robert Jackson for State Senate, District 31, becoming the first union to endorse any candidate in this race.
