See below video for when I ran for City Council. Senate race video coming soon!
Ursila Jung is running for State Senate in New York City, having been inspired by her passion for public service which has been a strong thread running through her life. She is a candidate who believes in the power of common sense and moderation and believes this is the approach needed to serve the downtown community.
Since completing her Master’s program in Public Policy at Columbia University, Ursila has spent most of her adult life in Downtown Manhattan. After 9/11, Ursila and her neighbors were evacuated from their homes for months. She returned to find a much changed downtown, but one which echoed with a courage, unity, and compassion that has been forever etched into her memory. She has been witness to the strength and resiliency of the people around her, as they put their community back together, coming back stronger than ever.
Since then, Ursila has gained expertise and insight while working in high levels of public policy around the world. Here in New York, she put her policy experience to work by leading the PTA of her children’s public schools, serving on the Community Education Council, and being an advocate for parents by giving them a voice in their children’s educations.
Now, Ursila is running for State Senate District 27 in Manhattan covering the neighborhoods of Battery Park City, Civic Center, Chinatown, Financial District, Little Italy, the Lower East Side, NoHo, SoHo, South Street Seaport, South Village, TriBeCa, Washington Square, West Village, Greenwich Village, East Village & Alphabet City. In this diverse district, she understands the importance of bringing pragmatism and common sense to the table.
As a mother, community member, and New Yorker, she knows that we can, and must, do better for everyone. We need strong leadership that is willing to build partnerships, not extreme politics that divide us. She knows that we need to rise above extreme, partisan politics and embrace a common sense approach to solving the many issues at hand - from keeping our streets safe to strengthening our education system and being able to have respectful conversations with people from all sides of the political spectrum. The challenges our city is facing in the coming years are daunting, but she's ready to roll up her sleeves and get to work.
WE CAN AND MUST DO
BETTER FOR OUR CITY.
