Former ‘Chief Mom’ Files for Hakeem Jeffries’ Assembly Seat

martine Former Chief Mom Files for Hakeem Jeffries Assembly SeatMartine Guerrier, the former “Chief Family Engagement Officer” for the Department of Education who went on to work with then-Deputy Mayor Dennis Walcott, appears to be formally throwing her hat in the ring for Brooklyn Assemblyman Hakeem Jeffries’ seat by filing campaign paperwork today. Mr. Jeffries, a candidate for Congressman Ed Towns’ seat, is currently seeking higher office rather than reelection.

By registering a campaign, Ms. Guerrier is able to raise and spend essential campaign funds as part of her quest for public office.

Ms. Guerrier, whom The New York Times labeled a “Haitian-American soccer mom,” is an educational policy expert who, prior to becoming “Chief Mom,” previously worked as the communications director and  legislative representative for a public school advocacy group in Albany.

She joins two other candidates in seeking the Democratic nomination for the seat: District Leaders Walter Mosley and Ola Alabi, both of whom have also filed registered committees and are actively campaigning.
