Invitation from Jackson’s office:
Democrat for Manhattan Borough President
As we commemorate the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr., celebrate the inauguration of President Barack Obama for a second term and are reminded how far we have come and how much more there is to do, I invite you to join me on Sunday, January 27th at 2:00pm as I officially announce my candidacy for Manhattan Borough President on the steps of City Hall.
I hope you and your family will join us for this important event.
I am a product of New York City’s public schools; a former local School Board President who sued the state to fix an inequitable school funding formula that was cheating our children, walked 150 miles to Albany to build support for the cause and won a court judgment that brought home $16 billion for NYC public schools; and I am a City Council leader who has taken on the tough fights, not backed down and gotten results.
I know Manhattan… its problems… and its people… and its promise.
I am ready to lead this borough… and with your help and a strong grassroots campaign, I am ready to win this race.
I can assure you – as someone who has run three NYC Marathons and climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro – no one will outwork me. But I also know I can’t do this alone. I ask you to join with me at our kick off and be a part of this movement for New York’s future.
Here are the details:
Sunday, January 27th, 2:00pm
City Hall Steps
Broadway @Chambers Street
Please RSVP Here
Or call John Decarvalho at 212-239-7323
Please be there… bring your family…and share this invitation with your friends, colleagues and neighbors. Everyone is welcome.
Together, we will make a difference for families today and generations to come.
Thank you, and look forward to seeing you on the 27th,
P.S. Even if you are unable to join us, I hope you will consider making a donation to help make our event a great success. Thank you.
