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.
