Shavar Jeffries

Susanna --

I want to thank again an absolutely amazing team of volunteers and supporters who walked hand-in-hand with us over these last 20 months that we fought for a brighter future in Newark. Many thousands of people over this period gave of their time, heart, and treasure for our movement for change. I have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of support and well wishes last night and this morning, and I want to thank each of you for reaching out. Over 20,000 Newarkers endorsed our movement, and I am deeply honored to have received such broad-based support for our campaign.

But as I said last night, the work continues. It is now time that all Newarkers come together for the betterment of our city, which faces deep crises around safety, our budget, economic development, and our schools. I wish Mayor-elect Baraka and his team well. My team, and the 20,000 strong who stand with us, are available to be a part of the solution to take our city to new heights.

Shavar Jeffries is running for mayor of Newark, a job held by Senator Cory Booker before he was elected to the United States Senate.

Shavar Jeffries is a civil rights lawyer and a university teacher whose life was disrupted by the violent murder of his mother when he was 10. He comes from a extraordinary family of over-achievers who have been unwilling to succumb to despair after violent tragedies. His cousin is US Congressman Hakeem Jeffries, and early on his mentor was the great late Congressman Donald Payne.

Below, in their own words. Donald Payne jr successfully contested his father's seat; in a video in which he speaks, he is introduced by Congressman Hakeem Jeffries.

Pictures below, I took in Newark City Hall in October 2012 during the Rwandan flag raising. Brother and son of the late Donald Payne, NJ Assemblyman Bill Payne and Congressman Donald Payne jr spoke to the gathering, which was organized by Marie Claudine Mukamabano, daughter of Rwanda and survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide.

Assemblyman Bill Payne was an elected official in New Jersey from 1998 to 2008. Both the younger and the elder Mr Payne have formally endorsed Mr Jeffries' campaign for mayor of Newark.
