A small business owner for over 14 years, James Kemmerer and his wife Elisha live in Bay Ridge and are the proud parents of a 22 month old son named Jerome. They understand the tough choices middle class families face each day, and for them our future is their family's future.
The economic recession, political division, and government dysfunction driven by increasing corruption inspired James to run for State Senate. A problem-solver by profession, James applies his skills to local issues including Hurricane Sandy recovery. James and his family worked providing food relief and helping with demolition and he continues to work on policy and advocacy for the families affected by the storm. He knows the government failed us with Hurricane Sandy and that it must not happen again.
The current generation is the first in American history not expected to do better than their parents, which is unacceptable. James Kemmerer is running for State Senate because he believes the solutions to our problems are within our grasp. We just need a government working for the people, not the special interests who fund political campaigns and buy politicians.
We’ve been working hard. Take a look at the endorsements we are receiving.
