Congressman Andy Kim Meets with Essex County Black Community Leaders and Seniors to Find Solutions to the Current Affordability Crisis

Essex County, NJ – Today, Congressman Kim spent the day meeting with Black leaders, community activists, and seniors to discuss the ongoing affordability crisis. He first met with local leaders at Cornbread and Soul in Montclair where they discussed the recently released Study on the Availability and Utilization of Small, Minority, Women, and Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses, which showed concrete evidence concluding there has been an ongoing wealth and opportunity gap for the Black community in New Jersey. This led to a productive and collaborative discussion on ways to curb this imbalance, and how they can work to solve problems with the assistance of federal funding.

After, he visited and spoke with residents at the Peter Antonellis Tower in East Orange, which is part of the Region 9 Housing Corporation, where he heard directly about the issues their seniors are facing. Region 9 is a nonprofit created to sponsor, promote, and provide affordable housing to meet the needs of low to moderate-income seniors, persons with disabilities, and families. They currently manage 1,110 affordable housing units across the state, bringing much-needed relief to New Jersey residents and families. 

“Today, I met with Essex County Black community leaders, activists, and seniors on the ground to discuss ways we can work together to address the affordability crisis which disproportionately negatively impacts the Black community across our state in terms of small business opportunities, rising healthcare costs, and pay disparity,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “I was able to speak directly with seniors who are living with the repercussions of this crisis every day and heard their calls for help when it comes to rising prescription costs and crumbling infrastructure. As Senator, I will be a champion for all communities in our state and I am confident we will be able to make lasting change by continuing to have open and collaborative discussions like we had all day today. I look forward to continued partnerships to make New Jersey a more equitable state.”

“I am grateful and impressed that Congressman Kim took so much time to hear my thoughts and concerns about the Black community and the struggle to build generational wealth,” said Alexander McLucas, Alpha Phi Alpha NJ District Director. “He listened with an open mind and is committed to finding solutions that will help my family and my community.” 

“I appreciate Congressman Kim taking time to sit and talk with me about the disparities in our State,” said William Scott Montclair House Commission Member and Montclair’s NAACP Housing Committee Chair. “He listened with an open mind, and I believe he is committed to learning and working to improve the lives of families in our community.”

First elected to Congress in 2018 at the age of 36, three-term Congressman Andy Kim is one of the younger members to serve in Congress and is the first Asian American elected to federal office from New Jersey. If elected to the Senate, Andy would be the 4th youngest Senator, and the first Asian American elected to the Senate from the entire east coast of America. In 2018 and 2020, Andy defeated two self-funding millionaires in a district carried by former President Trump, and in 2022 Kim defeated his third self-funding millionaire opponent by 12 points. 

As a son of immigrants, a graduate from New Jersey public schools, and a young dad, Andy represents a new generation of leadership in the Democratic Party and is committed to making sure all voices are heard when making decisions. He, and his wife Kammy, are raising two troublemaking boys down the road from where he grew up.

Both conventions will be voting by secret ballot with the Sussex Convention taking place on Saturday, followed by Warren on Sunday.

  • Warren County’s Washington Borough Mayor, Ethel M. Conry
  • Sussex County’s Sparta Democratic Committee(Sussex County)
  • Byram Democratic Committee(Sussex County)
  • Franklin Democratic Committee(Sussex County)
  • Ogdensburg Democratic Committee(Sussex County)
  • Wantage Democratic Committee(Sussex County)
  • Frankford Democratic Committee(Sussex County)

“I appreciate the support I have received from so many local committees in Sussex County, and am honored to have been endorsed by the only Democratic Mayor within Warren County,” said Congressman Andy Kim. “With my multiple congressional victories in a Trump district and experience winning tough races, I am thankful that local leaders in both counties have placed their trust in me to be the candidate to win in November, and to help turn out Democrats for their down-ballot races.” 

“I am proud to endorse Andy Kim and join with the many local leaders up and down the state of New Jersey who are excited to carry him into office,” said Washington Borough Mayor Ethel M. Conry. “[In Warren County] we are accustomed to being ignored by elected officials. I am convinced this will change based on Andy’s record of holding over seventy town halls during his six years in Congress. His record shows that he not only leads with integrity and humility but also with the energy needed to push back against extremists in the Senate…from championing climate policy and affordable healthcare in Congress to protecting our national security as an advisor to our country’s leaders, he has consistently been a principled public servant whose actions and values are aligned with voters across New Jersey. We need a battle-tested candidate who has won multiple times in a Trump district to lead our ticket to victory and finish the job.”

“Congressman Andy Kim has proven himself to be unequivocally the most qualified candidate to represent New Jersey in the U.S. Senate,” said Sparta Democratic Municipal Chair Sally Larson. “His unbridled commitment to his constituents in NJ-03, coupled with his broad and deep experience in public service, only further proves his ability to serve the state as Senator.”

“Both Congressman Kim and his children attended New Jersey’s public schools, which demonstrates his commitment to working for a better New Jersey,” said Ogdensburg committee member Madison Gunderman. 

“Andy’s intellect and qualifications for the job are indisputable, but it’s so much more than that,” said Leslie Boen, Byram Township Democratic Committee Chair. “It’s obvious to anyone who has met Andy or heard him speak that he is a public servant, not a politician. And that’s exactly what New Jersey needs right now. I am glad my fellow Byram Democrats agree.”

“We were excited about Andy before we actually heard from him directly, and now we are even more committed,” said Wantage Chair Susan Weiss. “His deep humility and authenticity underscore the reasons the momentum of grassroots Democrats is growing.” 

“It really came down to qualifications and his willingness to communicate with his constituents,” said Frankford Chair Bill Hart. “His 72 town hall meetings speak to that.” 

“Congressman Kim constantly demonstrates his preparedness to not only maneuver complex issues that affect New Jerseyans, but also to craft critical and compassionate legislation effective at the state and national levels alike,” said Dawne Rowe, current Franklin Chair and the former Sussex County Democratic Chairwoman. 

First elected to Congress in 2018 at the age of 36, three-term Congressman Andy Kim is one of the younger members to serve in Congress and is the first Asian American elected to federal office from New Jersey. If elected to the Senate, Andy would be the 4th youngest Senator, the first senator from South Jersey in recent memory, and the first Asian American elected to the Senate from the entire east coast of America. In 2018 and 2020, Andy defeated two self-funding millionaires in a district carried by former President Trump, and in 2022 Kim defeated his third self-funding millionaire opponent by 12 points. 

In his three terms in Congress, Andy has worked hard to lower costs for New Jersey families and help support small businesses through challenging times. Andy has also been a leading champion in fighting against corruption in our broken politics.

Democratic voters know who’s been on their side, and they’ll see right through the deception from the First Lady’s campaign.”

  • 7/3/2003: Murphy contributed $2,000 to Bush-Cheney ’04 Inc.
