Who is Jermaine

A dedicated, progressive leader with a proven track record

Jermaine Jones is a lifelong Baltimorean, community leader, and labor leader. He’s a proud graduate of the public school system and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Syracuse University. After graduating from college, Jermaine worked as a community organizer for LIUNA! (Laborers International Union of North America), working to protect the wages and jobs of working families. He also spearheaded and organized community initiatives that helped neighborhoods hold local governments accountable for addressing community concerns and needs.

A fighter for Baltimores working families.

Eventually, working his way up the ranks to Business Manager, he represented over 1,000 workers in construction, protecting their rights at the workplace, ensuring every person feels safe on the job, is treated with dignity and respect, and receives honest days pay for a hard day's work. A few years later, Jermaine was elected to become the first President of color of the Metropolitan Baltimore Council AFL-CIO Unions. During his tenure, one of his leading initiatives at the Metro Baltimore Council was bridging the gap between organized labor and our local communities, ensuring all workers throughout the Baltimore Metropolitan area had a voice whether they belonged to a union or not.

A public servant to our communities

Since being elected to serve on Baltimore City's Democratic State Central Committee, Jermaine has worked tirelessly to ensure the voices of our communities are heard and part of the process. Over the years, Jermaine has registered hundreds of people to vote and testified at public hearings to bring resources to our communities. Jermaine is now running for Baltimore's 12th District City Council seat because he wants to be an even more effective public servant to our communities at a time when we need it the most.

"I've had the privilege of calling Baltimore home for most of my life. During this time, I've witnessed the resilience and strength that define our City. It's this very spirit that propels me forward in seeking the honor of representing the citizens of Baltimore on the Council."
