It has been important for us to join with other legislators to ensure that the Haitian community gets its fair share of funds for housing, good schools, and safe streets. This is why we have come together to endorse a dear friend and colleague who we have witnessed her work and trust that she will continue to deliver in our fight for a better quality of Life.
The Haitian community in New York City, Long Island and other parts of New York State has become a vibrant political force. Each of us now serve in important capacities in the State and City level. In this capacity, we have been strong advocates for our people and have fought hard for the special needs our community requires.
Roxanne Persaud is the current State Senator being the first woman elected to hold this seat. She was elected last year, November 2015 and before that served as an Assembly member in the New York State Legislature.
Senator Persaud has stood in the fight to raise minimum wage, improve our children's education, implement better staffing for nurses, support our seniors, make our streets safer and backed the Paid Family Leave Act.
Senator Persaud makes a difference. She has been a longtime community activist, President of the 69th Precinct Council, and left a lucrative position as the Registrar at St. Francis College so that she might serve as a member of the New York Assembly and then State Senate.
Senator Persaud has been endorsed by major unions including:
1199SEIU, 32BJ, TWU Local 100, DC 37, AFLCIO, CSA, and many more.
Please join us on TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 13TH in re-electing SENATOR ROXANNE PERSAUD.
Se Moun Pa Nou, Se Candida nou!
