Hakeem Jeffries

This Brooklyn native definitely understands why Brooklyn goes hard! Winning the eighth Congressional seat in the United States House of Representatives in 2012, Jeffries introduced The Superstorm Sandy Mortgage Relief Act of 2013 in the state of New York. 

Last summer, Jeffries held a dozen “Congress on Your Corner” meetups, where he stood outside of libraries, post offices and neighborhood institutions talking to residents and answering questions. (Photo: REUTERS/Hans Pennink)
