My mission is to create laws that grant the best quality of life for vulnerable populations. Women, children, people of color, LGBTQIA+, elderly, economically disadvantaged, people living with HIV, uninsured and disabled people, deserve quality healthcare, affordable housing and equity in education.

Chantel on the issues:

Chantel believes that her W.H.E.N. (Wellness, Housing, Education, Now!) mission, will genuinely and totally transform her district into an even more healthy and wealthy community. 

Wellness- Of the 62 counties in New York State, the Bronx holds the title as the unhealthiest county. Chantel wants to focus on reducing high rates of diabetes, obesity, heart disease and asthma by addressing the environmental factors that are the causes for these issues. She wants to properly fund mental health services and increase insurance for uninsured and underinsured people. 

Housing- When it comes to housing, she wants to continue creating affordable housing, lower evictions and increase home ownership. 

Education Chantel wants to make sure the neediest school districts receive the funding owed to them by New York State and increase the TAP grant that allows New Yorkers to attend college.  She wants to increase education in the RBCs; Real Estate, Business & Credit.[/vcma_advancedtext][/vc_column][vc_column css_animation=”fadeIn” width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1491514080027{margin-top: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0.12) !important;*background-color: rgb(255,255,255) !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”2540″][/vc_column][/vc_row][/vc_section][vc_row full_height=”yes”][vc_column width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1587218247643{margin-bottom: 0px !important;background-position: center !important;background-repeat: no-repeat !important;background-size: cover !important;}”][vc_single_image image=”31″ img_caption=”(Assemblyman Michael Blake, NYS Attorney General Tish James & Community Leader Chantel Jackson at the 2019 Dominican Day Parade Pre Breakfast)”][/vc_column][vc_column css_animation=”fadeIn” width=”1/2″ css=”.vc_custom_1587218166959{background-color: rgba(255,255,255,0.12) !important;*background-color: rgb(255,255,255) !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”About Chantel Jackson” font_container=”tag:h2|font_size:44|text_align:left|color:%23000000″ google_fonts=”font_family:Roboto%3A100%2C100italic%2C300%2C300italic%2Cregular%2Citalic%2C500%2C500italic%2C700%2C700italic%2C900%2C900italic|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal”][vcma_advancedtext advancedtext_textcolor=”#b2b2b2″ advancedtext_fontsize=”14px” advancedtext_wordspacing=”2px” advancedtext_lineheight=”1.6″ advancedtext_url=”#” google_fonts=”font_family:Adamina%3Aregular|font_style:400%20regular%3A400%3Anormal” css_animation=”fadeIn”]Chantel Jackson is a native New Yorker and candidate for New York State Assembly for the 79th District in The South Bronx.
