My name is Andrae Mitchell. I'm running to represent the 89th District of Mount Vernon and Yonkers in the New York State Assembly.
Our neighborhoods are filled with beauty and possibility that have gone largely unnoticed. There is so much opportunity to grow into the jewel of Westchester I know we can be.
I’m running to make sure we get the resources we deserve. As your State Assemblymember, I’ll work to make sure we get the government support we need to reach our full potential:
I have the experience and the energy to listen to the needs of the district and advocate in Albany. Our lawmakers should be legislating policies that will make the most positive impact on our community.
I'm invested in this district as a sanctuary for my family who immigrated to New York a generation ago, as the place I call home, and as the place I've laid down roots for my growing family.
On #TransDayOfVisibility, we celebrate the beautiful diversity of the trans community and demand more than visibility. We must provide resources, call out transphobia wherever we see it, and push our elected officials to continue strengthening protections for trans people. 🏳️⚧️
Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Today we celebrate the generations of Irish immigrants who helped build Westchester County.
In celebration of #InternationalWomensDay, let’s take another step toward gender equality by passing the #NYHealthAct. Women tend to spend far more on healthcare and have more unmet healthcare needs — but it’s in our power to change that.
We’re all feeling it: It’s time for a change. The election this June 28 is a chance for Mount Vernon and Yonkers to vote for a new beginning — the first chapter of a brighter, more prosperous future that we'll build together.
We’re trying to raise $8,000 by March 15 to get ...Andrae on the Democratic ballot. Will you chip in $15 right now to help us reach our goal? You can donate here ⬇️

W.C. Handy, the Father of the Blues, was one of the most influential songwriters in the US. He was the first to publish blues music, taking it from a regional style to mainstream popularity. He started a music publishing co. in NYC & later moved to Mount Vernon with his children. ...#BlackHistoryMonth
This #BlackHistoryMonth, we’re honoring community members who forged a path through history and celebrating the influence African-Americans have had on the US. Let these reminders uplift us all as we continue to fight for a just and equal New York State.
We’re kicking off the month by ...celebrating the Queen of Jazz, Ella Fitzgerald, who moved to Yonkers as a child and went on to become one of the most influential jazz musicians of all time. Today, a life-size bronze statue celebrates her by the Yonkers MetroNorth station.
Happy #LunarNewYear! Today we enter the Year of the Tiger, reminding us to move forward with bravery, strength and wisdom. Wishing everyone a safe, healthy and prosperous year 🧧🎇
This #HolocaustRemembranceDay, we honor and remember the victims and survivors of the atrocities that took place and recognize our communal responsibility to fight the antisemitism rising around the globe and here in NY. We must all stand in solidarity with the Jewish community.
Important update from @yonkerspublicschools ⬇️
“The District is aware of yesterday's New York State Supreme Court ruling regarding the legality of the State mandate requiring mask wearing in schools and public spaces, as well as the anticipated appeal of this decision.
...“Late yesterday, the New York State Department of Education issued a
statement that ‘schools must continue to follow the mask rule.’
“Therefore, until we receive a definitive decision from the New York
State Department of Education and Department of Health, Yonkers
Public Schools students, staff and visitors will continue to wear
masks at all times in our schools.”
New York State’s eviction moratorium is set to expire on Jan. 15. If you need help paying rent, @westchester_county_government has resources to help ⬆️
Happy New Year! Wishing everyone a healthy, safe and happy 2022 ✨
Today we remember Shamoya McKenzie, a young Mount Vernonite with a deep love for her community and dreams of being a basketball star. We can’t get back what we lost 5 years ago, but we must honor her memory by working together to end gun violence in Westchester and NYS.
