Delivering for New Yorkers
New Yorkers know they have a champion in Jerry Nadler.
Over his years in Congress, Jerry has delivered tens of billions in funding for New Yorkers, ensuring that our city has greener parks, safer streets, and state-of-the-art medical facilities. He has been one of the fiercest fighters in Congress for NYCHA residents and has helped secure the resources necessary to keep tens of thousands of public housing families in their homes.
Throughout his time in Congress–and especially during his tenure on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee–Jerry has led efforts to streamline transit networks within New York, as well as those that connect New York to the rest of the country. Whether it’s the Second Avenue Subway, the Moynihan Train Station, the Gateway Program (set to begin construction in 2023), the Cross Harbor Freight Program, or billions in dedicated funding to repair and enhance existing New York transportation needs, many of the large transportation projects that improve the lives of New Yorkers have only come to fruition thanks to Jerry’s relentless advocacy.
During COVID-19, which hit New York harder than anywhere else, Jerry–the Dean of New York’s Congressional Delegation–worked to provide assistance to the families and small businesses that required help the most. He delivered public funds to struggling small businesses and restaurants, led efforts in Washington to expand benefits and assistance for those who lost their jobs, and made sure that schools received all they needed to safely welcome back returning students and teachers.
