The Jenkins’ campaign has been picking up steam with added staff, and in influx of hundreds of volunteers in a show of grassroots support. Ken has been crisscrossing the district, attending as many as 3 meetings a night with Democratic leaders from New Rochelle to Ossining.

“Yonkers is my home, and it is a true honor to have the support of the Yonkers Democrats,” said Jenkins, upon receiving the endorsement. “This is going to be the largest grassroots campaign Westchester County has ever seen, and with this endorsement, we’re off to the races.”

“Ken is a strong advocate for the people of Yonkers, and all the people of Westchester County,” said Meier. “Today, more than ever, we need a leader that will create opportunities for ALL its residents.”

County Legislator Ken Jenkins attempts to make history by becoming the first African-American County Executive. Jenkins will be challenging Rob Astorino who announced in January he will be running to retain his seat and serve a third term as Westchester County Executive.

    It is disappointing that Ken Jenkins is one of the main promoters of legislation/a resolution in the County Council denouncing the Palestinian effort to gain their human rights and a state of their own via the nonviolent efforts of the “Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions” (BDS) movement. Boycotting products and businesses used to support Israel’s occupation of territory gained 50 years ago in the 1967 war is similar to the efforts we made in the last century to boycott products and businesses in apartheid South Africa. Furthermore, the Constitutional right to boycott (a First Amendment right) was established in a case involving the NAACP. Ken Jenkins should be supporting the efforts of those who speak and act nonviolently in support of Palestinian freedom, not denouncing them or trying to penalize them.
