A LEADER YOU KNOW & TRUST

"Our nation stands at a pivotal moment in history where our collective choices will shape the future trajectory of our country.

Will we uphold and honor our democratic traditions? Will we boldly champion truth, celebrate diversity, and propel progress forward? Or will we be divided by anger, falsehoods, and stagnation?

Throughout my adult life, I have tirelessly dedicated myself to pursuing a more just and equitable society for all Americans. From serving in local elective offices to overseeing electoral integrity as an election commissioner, leading within the Democratic Party, to advocating in the non-profit sector, I have consistently fought on the front lines for a 21st-century America that embodies our nation's true spirit.

I understand intimately the frustrations of navigating the complexities of politics and governance. Yet, we cannot afford to falter in the face of adversity. Progress may be gradual, but we must persevere with unwavering resolve. Let us hold fast to our convictions, stand firm in our commitment to what is right, and steadfastly defend the essence of this great nation.

Let us forge ahead with hope, courage, and a steadfast belief in the brighter future we can create for all Americans."

his local Democratic Party, where he secured notable electoral triumphs in one of the

country's most conservative counties. In 2020, he emerged as an early and impactful

endorser of Joe Biden for president, subsequently earning an appointment by the Biden

campaign to the prestigious DNC Platform Committee. Jackson has garnered acclaim in

recent years for his impactful advocacy in digital spheres and steadfast support of

President Biden and his administration.
