Born in an Indian orphanage, Jeremy was adopted by a courageous single-mother and was raised and educated in the City of Rochester. He has devoted his career to serving the community that helped raise him — from the YMCA to all levels of government. He got his start working with the late U.S. Congresswoman Louise Slaughter and has gone on to work for two New York Governors and the Mayor of Rochester.

With a deep commitment to creating the Rochester of tomorrow, Jeremy is passionate about investing in quality public schools, affordable housing, universal health care, reducing our carbon footprint and helping families find pathways out of poverty.
