STATEMENT ON THE LOCAL PARTY’S CHANGE OF LEADERSHIP

“This change is big: Chair Seddio is the Party Boss and controls so much of the way the Democratic Party operates in Brooklyn. What’s missing is transparent communication from the Party to County Committee members. Today, still, so much information is shared behind closed doors and among those in the know. Brooklynites deserve proactive, timely, and professional communications from Party leadership — something I will advocate for if elected District Leader.”
