Trying to further boost momentum to get funds from the Campaign for Fiscal Equity (CFE) lawsuit, elected officials hosted the first of several citywide town hall meetings in the Bronx last Wednesday. “It’s important for [us] as legislators, instead of asking you to come to City Hall all the time that we [come] to the community,” said Councilmember Robert Jackson, addressing the dozens of residents who turned out for last Wednesday’s meeting.

New York Times. 8/27/2001.
Seventh District (Washington Heights, West Harlem and Inwood): The two top candidates in this race are Robert Jackson, a longtime champion of quality education, and Mark Levine, an energetic community activist. Mr. Levine has done an important service to the neighborhood by establishing a community development credit union. But Mr. Jackson has spent years working for better schools for the entire city. He breathed life into the Campaign for Fiscal Equity, which recently won a historic lawsuit to bring the city more state funds. In a year when virtually every candidate says schools are the top priority, our choice is Robert Jackson.
