For Immediate Release: April 20, 2021

NASSAU COUNTY, NY: New York State Democratic Party Chairman Jay S. Jacobs has released the following statement:

"To the world, the idea of America has been inspirational. To us who call this home, the idea of America has always been aspirational. We aspire to be that 'more perfect union.'

Today’s verdict brings us one small step closer to the day when the scourge of systemic racism is relegated to the discarded collection of shameful episodes in our country’s otherwise proud past. Let us continue moving forward in our hope of one day creating 'that more perfect union.' "
