Black Dems announce support of Jenkins
Democratic Candidate for County Executive Ken Jenkins Receives the Endorsement of the Black Democrats of Westchester
Another Boost for the Jenkins Campaign
The Black Democrats of Westchester on Saturday announced their enthusiastic endorsement for Ken Jenkins in his campaign for Westchester County Executive.
“Ken Jenkins is the right man for the job, there’s absolutely no question about it” said Terry Clements, First Vice-Chair of the organization. “Ken has proved, with his dedicated service to the people of Westchester on the Board of Legislators that he’s the right man to take over leadership of the County.”
Ken has served on the Westchester County Board of Legislators since 2007, and during that time has worked tirelessly to ensure that the government is for all the people and plays an efficient and compassionate role in our everyday lives.
“I am honored to receive this endorsement,” said Jenkins. “The Black Democrats’ of Westchester stand for integrity, influence, and tradition, and all three help form the very foundation of my campaign.”
Two issues at the top of Ken’s platform, fiscal responsibility and community services, came to light recently with the Sprain pool re-opening, which his opponent claimed as a victory. But in fact, the community was kept from using a popular family spot for six years, and millions of dollars were wasted because of the illegal delay in reopening it.
“Westchester County should be managed with fairness, and with integrity. This is not the Astorino way,” said Clements. “I have known Ken for years, and trust me when I tell you that it is Ken’s only way.”
The campaign also announced that more endorsements, along with a key policy rollout, are slated for the coming weeks.
“Mine is a campaign by and for the people,” Ken said in closing. “It’s about bringing our beautiful, diverse community together. This endorsement is a recognition symbolizingthose ideals.”
