2023 marks Assembly Member Chantel Jackson's 2nd term serving District 79, including the neighborhoods of Concourse Village, Melrose, Morrisiana, Claremont, Belmont, and East Tremont. In her first term, she successfully got her bill signed into law that requires a license to purchase or take possession of a semiautomatic rifle. She is the chair of the subcommittee on Micro Businesses and serves on the Alcohol and Drug Abuse, Cities, Education, Housing, Small Business and Mental Health Committees. Before becoming an elected official, Jackson served as a social worker for a New York City high school, a college advisor for high school students, and a college professor. Of all her career endeavors, being a mom to her daughter Skye and son TJ is her most fulfilling job. Her focus will continue to center around health, wellness, education, and generational wealth for her community.
