Let’s talk about District Leaders – these are the folks you might see listed as State Committee members on the ballot in Brooklyn. It’s confusing. But here’s the deal: they’re the ones who can make real change within the Brooklyn Democratic Party.
District Leaders pick judges, staff the NYC Board of Elections, and shape how our local democratic party runs. They also vote to elect the Party Chair, a.k.a. the “Party Boss,” who decides what our party stands for and where the money goes.
Our endorsements are all about making sure we’ve got folks in these positions who will fight for transparency, accountability, and our communities – no matter who you are or where you come from.
