Jimmy Dahroug was the 2004 and 2006 nominee for the New York State Senate on Long Island. His campaign was one of the few selected from a national field for support in 2004 as Democracy for America’s “Dean Dozen.” In 2006, Jimmy came closer than any Democrat in a century to representing Long Island's Suffolk County in the New York State Senate.

As a guest lecturer at college campuses Jimmy enjoys talking to young people about the virtues and realities of public service and politics. He has also served as a youth mentor and advocate for local mentoring programs.

He earned his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Columbia University and holds a Master's degree in Education Policy from Harvard University.
