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 True Blue grassroots candidates in opposing the IDC (Independent Democratic Conference) which formed in 2010. Incumbent Diane Savino was one of the earliest Democrats who was elected as a Democrat, and then chose, with her IDC colleagues, to caucus with and empower the Republicans in the Senate.
However, on April 4, after the 2018 budget was passed, the IDC suddenly decided to reconcile with the mainline Democrats.
As a True Blue Democrat, my campaign is straightforward and transparent: I do not rely on corporate donors -- I am a committed and consistent Progressive Democrat. I am running for this State Senate seat because I care about the working class people and communities in District 23.
The residents of of District 23 deserve a strong advocate in Albany. That's why my slogan is #Jasi4allofus. I am here for you and I invite you to join our campaign and help make our district a vibrant, safe home for all our families.
