Mondaire Jones


Democratic primary voters everywhere — particularly all voters in Rockland County, young voters district-wide, and voters of color district-wide — should read and see digitally that Mondaire Jones was endorsed by the New York Times. He grew up in Section 8 housing and on food stamps, but the education he got in East Ramapo public schools helped him work for Barack Obama and get to Harvard Law School. Unfortunately, the quality education he received in East Ramapo public schools is no longer available to many in Rockland and Westchester counties.  This is why fighting to fully fund our public schools is a top priority for Mondaire. Mondaire is unique in the field because he understands how hard it is for working people to get ahead. That’s why Mondaire will fight to help people struggling to make ends meet, starting by making health care affordable for everyone. Mondaire believes health care is a right, not a privilege, so — unlike his opponents in the Democratic Primary — he supports Medicare for All.


Why I'm Running

I’m running for Congress to fight for bold, progressive policies that will help everyday people and allow all children in New York’s 17th Congressional District to dream big like I did.
