Why you should support Kyle Ishmael

You're here because my team and I are counting on your support.
We know you got our back!


I am running to be the next New York State Assemblyman representing my community of Uptown Manhattan. A perfect blend of Harlem and The Heights, the 71st Assembly District is one of the most beautifully diverse and dynamic districts in the state, and I couldn't be more proud to call this community my home.

After working several years as an attorney advocating to keep families together; fighting for a fairer justice system; and leading efforts to usher progressive policies through the New York Legislature as the Executive Director of the second-largest legislative caucus in the nation, I'm excited to stand for the community that stands for me. 

But in order to go from the island to the capital, I'll need your help. By collecting pledges of support from my closest family and friends, we'll be able to hit the ground running once we officially launch the campaign. Your pledge right now will prove that the leaders of tomorrow are grown today. 

Please join our campaign; and together, we will Reach New Heights!

A little bit louder, now...

What else can I say, except: THANK YOU!

I knew that reaching out to friends and family for support would help us to get this campaign off the ground. But seeing it in action is something else; and proves that when things get tough, I'll always have a solid team behind me!

Your pledges--now converted to donations--are pushing us forward. And the campaign is stepping out a little bit louder, now...

You heard it here, first: Uptown for Kyle Ishmael has officially filed, and the digital launch begins tomorrow, August 1st!

Stay tuned for more updates as we make the next step towards taking our message to the community. Thanks again for your love and support - and watch this space as we #ReachNewHeights!
