BDC Endorses Mondaire Jones for Congress

The Bedford, NY Democratic Committee (BDC) has endorsed former Democratic representative Mondaire Jones (NY-17) for the House of Representatives to reclaim his previously held seat. Jones is running to return to Congress to finish the work he started to lower costs for Lower Hudson Valley residents, make our communities safer, defend our democracy, raise wages, support social justice, protect the environment, and stop Republicans from banning abortion. The BDC is pleased to join numerous Democratic Committees, independent organizations, party leaders and elected officials across NY-17 who have endorsed Jones.

Jones is the candidate most qualified to defeat incumbent GOP Representative Mike Lawler (NY-17), who talks like a moderate on TV but votes MAGA. Lawler actively supports House Speaker Mike Johnson, thereby aligning himself with far-right extremism that is out of touch with the values of the majority of voters in Bedford and across the district.

Jones was raised in Section 8 housing in nearby Rockland County by a single mom and is a proud product of local public schools. He went on to earn his bachelor’s degree from Stanford University, work at the Department of Justice during the Obama Administration, and graduate from Harvard Law School. He worked as a litigator in the Westchester County Attorney’s Office before being elected in 2020 to represent the Hudson Valley in the US House of Representatives.
