JORDAN LESSER FOR ASSEMBLY

LESSER IS MORE

 

WHAT MAKES ME DIFFERENT?

 

JORDAN AT THE CANDIDATE'S FORUM, MAY 28, 2020

This forum allowed me to highlight my extensive experience, knowledge, and deep understanding of the complex workings of the NYS legislature. As we enter a very difficult time due to COVID-19, my expertise, zero learning curve in Albany, and long-time working relationships will be more important than ever.

Take a look at this video of my debate performance and I believe you will see that: LESSER IS MORE!
