Economic Mobility. Workers' Rights.
Jerry’s campaign is focused on addressing common economic and social struggles shared across our communities in the 18th District. Those struggles include stagnant economic mobility, weakened workers’ rights, rising costs of housing, lack of access to healthcare, and the failures of the criminal justice system. These are common struggles that tie the people of the 18th District together.
Block Trump’s Wall
Today, Jerry is the nation’s leading legal expert holding President Trump accountable for his executive actions. In 2017, the U.S. Senate Committee on Governmental Affairs and Homeland Security invited Jerry to submit expert testimony on President Trump’s border wall Executive Order. As Congressman, Jerry would be a voice of reason and use his knowledge of constitutional law and property to constrain the President. His legal opinions have been published by The Washington Post, The Atlantic and The Hill. He is frequently quoted in national and international newspapers regarding President Trump.
