Communicated: Rep. Mondaire Jones is running on a record, not just promises, in the competitive race for Congress
In the crowded race for New York’s 10th Congressional District, which includes parts of the Borough Park neighborhood in Brooklyn, there is only one candidate who stands out with a proven record of standing up for the Jewish community – that’s Congressman Mondaire Jones.
Jone, who is running for a second term in Congress, represented the Jewish community in Rockland County since his election in 2020. Despite the support he received from Senator Bernie Sanders and Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, two progressive politicians who have been critical of Israel, Jones has spoken out in defense of Israel, denounced the BDS movement and supported increased U.S. military assistance to Israel.
In response to nationwide mass shootings and an increase in antisemitic incidents, Jones called for the federal government to increase security grants for synagogues and nonprofits and strongly denounced antisemitism.
For Congressman Jones, it’s not just all talk and campaign promises. He already has a track record of representing the Jewish community as a true and reliable ally and has established a working relationship with community leaders. His positive reputation has caused voters to gravitate toward his candidacy. In recent polls, Jones is in third place, just points behind the two leading candidates.
Members of the community who are eligible to vote have an opportunity to make their voice heard by coming out to vote for Jones so that he could continue representing the Jewish community in a senior position.
The primary is on Tuesday, August 23.
