A veteran Democratic Congressman who has been described as the “Liberal Lion” of the New York Congressional Delegation, and a “true reformer” from his first days in politics, Jerrold "Jerry" Nadler got his start as one of the “West Side Kids”—a group of young activists committed to remaking the politics of New York City to ensure that elected officials better served the needs of everyday New Yorkers.

Through his 16 years in the New York State Assembly, and since his election to Congress in 1992, Jerry has been considered a stalwart advocate for civil rights and civil liberties; a key voice on transportation issues; an ardent supporter of a secure and democratic Israel; and a nationally-recognized champion of progressive causes that advance economic and social justice in order to protect the most vulnerable among us. As a highly-respected and senior leader of the House Judiciary Committee, Jerry has been a relentless defender of our country’s fundamental promise of equality for all and has proudly stood on the front lines in the fight for LGBT rights, women’s rights, racial justice, and the First Amendment rights guaranteeing freedom of expression and religion. Jerry has been called a “visionary” for his leadership in working to improve New York City’s infrastructure, and as the senior Northeastern Democrat on the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, has led the national fight to increase federal funding for mass transit and been a fierce advocate for effective and sustainable goods movement in New York and nationwide.

A life-long fighter for New York and its residents, Jerry came to center stage as the “Ground Zero Congressman,” ably representing the district that was hit in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks, and working tirelessly in the aftermath to gain substantial federal aid, as well as health care and compensation for the responders and survivors. He has also been a tremendous supporter of the many educational, cultural and social welfare organizations based in his vibrant and diverse district—bringing hundreds of millions of federal dollars home; supports sensible economic and community development initiatives; and takes tremendous pride in serving his constituents through his highly-regarded Constituent Services program.

Born in Brooklyn, Jerry is a graduate of Crown Heights Yeshiva, Stuyvesant High School, Columbia College and Fordham Law School. He lives on the Upper West Side of New York with his wife Joyce. They have one son, Michael.

I consider myself a progressive democrat. Since being elected to Congress in 1992, I have remained focused on serving the interests of New York’s 10th Congressional District, and on the most pressing issues facing our country – the economy, our security and our families’ health and education – and have worked each and every day to protect our progressive values. I have fought extremely hard to defend our Constitution, and ensure that our individual rights and liberties remain sacrosanct. And I have led a multi-decades effort to ensure that we have a cleaner and more efficient transportation infrastructure for New York and the rest of the country.
