Sean Gardner For New York City Council - District 8
Rev. Dr. Sean P. Gardner is the Senior Pastor and Chief Executive Officer of the East Ward Missionary Baptist Church, located in the Village of East Harlem, New York. Dr. Gardner has not only been the senior pastor of the East Ward Missionary Baptist Church for the last 20 years; but has also completed a 20-year career in the New York City Police Department as the rank of Detective. Dr. Gardner decided to trade in his uniform and preaching robe when the residents of the 8th District NYC Council expressed ongoing concerns to him within their communities, and decided to run for the New York City Council.
Dr. Gardner represents and serves one of the most vibrant and wonderfully diverse districts in all of New York City, covering sections of the neighborhoods of El Barrio / East Harlem. As a Pastor in East Harlem, Dr. Gardner became well-known to residents within the community as a tireless and thoughtful advocate for the people and communities he served, and he earned widespread praise for serving in positive and innovative programs dealing with several issues ranging from conflict resolution to child abuse prevention; and combating youth gang influences and drug abuse such as the Harlem Youth Marines Inc. which has served the youth of Harlem for over three decades; serving as their Chaplain and Chairman of the board.
