Cristina Gonzalez's Picture

Cristina Gonzalez

Cristina Gonzalez is a political strategist currently working with Jesscia Gonzalez-Rojas, who is running for State Assembly, and Janos Marton, running for Manhattan DA. She previously served as Jumanee's Deputy Campaign Manager, building the field strategy, and helping garner 33 percent of the vote in a race with 17 candidates. Previously worked with Make the Road Action to turn key Congressional and State Senate seats blue in New York, Connecticut, and New Jersey. Through our efforts with Make the Road Action, we helped pave the way for one of the highest voter turnout increases in 2018, with Hispanic voter turnout increasing twice as much as non-Hispanic voters. Gonzalez served on Zephyr Teachout's campaign for Attorney General, first as the press secretary and later promoted to political director, helping the team secure some incredibly valuable endorsements. In the summer of 2017, she served as campaign manager for Amanda Farias, who ran for city council as the only woman in a race with four male candidates, earning second place against Ruben Diaz Sr.
