Monique Chandler-Waterman starts campaign to replace Nick Perry


Brooklyn community activist Monique Chandler-Waterman on Saturday kicked off her campaign to replace Assembly Member N. Nick Perry, representative for the 58th Assembly District in Brooklyn, who was confirmed last Thursday by the United States Senate as the first Jamaican-born US ambassador to Jamaica.

Perry, a veteran state legislator, supports Chandler-Waterman, the daughter of Barbadian and Jamaican immigrants, at the campaign launching ceremony at Church and Utica avenues in Brooklyn.

“I’m proud to support Monique to be the next Assemblymember, and I know the district will be in good hands,” he said. “She is a natural leader in every sense of the word, and her roots go deep in this community.
