MEET JIMMY

Born to the Class Struggle

Jimmy was born and raised in Queens. When his parents, both union members, were between jobs, they struggled with homelessness.

An organizer for the public good

Jimmy entered public life as an organizer for campaign finance reform—to reduce the influence of special interests. He later worked for the Queens Public Library.

A career of standing up to the party bosses

Jimmy won election to the City Council by defeating the Queens machine’s hand-picked candidate. And he was a strong supporter of Tiffany Caban’s campaign for district attorney.
