Community service event and campaign announcement to take place at the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens
Jenifer Rajkumar has pledged that 10% of her campaign’s time will be devoted to community service projects in her district in South Queens. Rajkumar, a lawyer, professor at CUNY, and former New York State Government Official, is running for the 38th Assembly District seat in Southern Queens.
“My home in South Queens embodies the American Dream. It is filled with hardworking people including immigrant communities that make up 72% of the district,” said Rajkumar, “In today’s corrupt political climate, it is important we remember that politics at its best is community service. I pledge that 10% of my campaign’s time will be devoted to community service projects in my district. We deserve a true leader, not one who simply represents, but one who also serves. As Aristotle himself expressed, politics is the practice of virtue. We need to bring sacredness and honor back to public service and it starts with uplifting the overlooked and undeserrved residents of South Queens.”
Rajkumar is holding a community service event at the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens. It will be a holiday party providing food and supplies for underserved teenagers. Members of the press are invited to the event for her campaign’s official community service pledge and announcement:
