Jackie Toboroff, City Council District 1

Jackie has lived her whole life in New York City, even attending NYU and then Parsons where she earned her BFA. As a divorced mother and small business owner, she has watched the city that she loves fall further and further behind. Since COVID-19, local leaders have aggressively intensified their already misguided approach. As a result, more tax-paying New Yorkers have fled, businesses have been abandoned, and our children suffer from a lack of functioning schools. With trash piling up on the sidewalks and crime skyrocketing, Jackie knew that spineless politicians wouldn't stand up for her and the millions of others that live in the city. As a single mother, Jackie won't quit fighting for a safer and revitalized city for her family and the rest of the families out there. http://jackiefornyc.com/
