CSA is proud to endorse Jessica Scarcella-Spanton for State Senator in the 23rd District. Raised by public school educators, she understands firsthand the importance of unions in the lives of working families and has been a fierce advocate for workers throughout her career. We know that she will fight alongside school leaders to bring much-needed resources and support to our schools.
— Mark Cannizzaro CSA President
Jessica's hard work and professionalism, while she worked for Senator Diane Savino, has earned her the UFA endorsement.
She comes from a family of firefighters, and she has a personal interest in advocating for our needs. We are proud to give her our endorsement and we fully support her campaign for State Senator.
— Eric Bischoff UFA Trustee, Staten Island
I am proud to endorse Jessica Scarcella-Spanton for NYS Senate because she has always been there for our members. From scheduling thousands of vaccinations when it was impossible to get an appointment to cutting through the red tape of city bureaucracy for constituents on the North Shore and throughout Brooklyn, she always shows up and fights for us. She is exactly the type of leadership we need in Albany, making sure government works for everyone.
— Dennis Quirk President, NYS Court Officers Association
The words Jessica always says are let’s get it done and she does. She has done so much to help us with our situation in Park Hill in the buildings, same as Stapleton. She comes out to every area to help. We need someone who is from here and knows here and deals with the people here. I think Jessica is the best one for this.
— Prince Thomas Park Hill Tenant Patrol President
She fought for me and my business the way that I was fighting for my business, except her city network and knowledge was the key to making things happen. I don’t think I would have opened my doors if it wasn’t for Jessica’s genuine attention and passion for helping me and all of the families that were impacted by childcare not being available.
— Alina Nevradakis owner of Tiny Treasures Academy
I support Jessica for State Senate because she already knows the job of servicing constituents from the North Shore of SI. When I needed help from Senator Savino's office, she was there to respond. Earlier in the pandemic when I needed the vaccine for myself and my elderly tenant, Jessica told me where I could go. When businesses on Forest Avenue needed help to get the vaccine, she was right there. And when a daycare center on Van Duzer Street couldn't cut through the red tape to open, Jessica Spanton was there. There is no one else who will work harder or go the extra mile for the people of the North Shore of Staten Island than Jessica.
— Priscilla Marco Community Leader
I’m proud to stand with Jessica as she has stood with me throughout the struggles that we have had in Park Hill. She has always been on the ground fighting with us. I’ll be there with her to the end with much love.
— Alice Hudson Park Hill Community Leader
I first met Jess in 2009, when we both worked for members of the NYS Assembly. I was impressed by her then - seeing her deep understanding of legislation and her passion for how the work could impact people’s day-to-day lives. Back then, Jess had a wisdom beyond her years. That wisdom has deepened with her years of experience. But what can’t be learned, what truly sets her apart, is her heart. Jess has compassion, kindness and an ability to connect with people that is reflected in her drive to improve the community. I wholeheartedly support and endorse Jessica Scarcella-Spanton for NYS Senate
— Laura Sword Vice-chair of the Democratic Party
I have known Jessica Scarcella-Spanton personally, and worked with her on a professional level for many years. I believe she possesses the political knowledge, temperament, and moral ethics to become an outstanding representative for the 23rd Senatorial District. Jessica's promise to her constituents will be one of honesty and commitment. She knows her community and it's issues. She is the best choice to become the North Shore's next State Senator.
— John Mastellone District Leader, AD 62
