Tuesday was a massive victory for everyday Brooklyn Democrats, who voted resoundingly to elect district leaders ready to stand up against the party machine.
Thirteen NKD-endorsed candidates won district leader seats, based on preliminary election results. This is a significant step toward a local Democratic party that respects, empowers, and includes all Brooklynites.
This cycle, NKD endorsed 18 District Leader candidates – ten of them running for office for the first time. All candidates ran for unpaid district leader positions as part of the Brooklyn Can’t Wait slate, and pledged to increase participation and transparency in our local party. They ran against candidates backed by the party establishment, including a State Senator and many long-term incumbents.Read more
