Other endorsement results below.
South Central Brooklyn United is considering endorsement in a number of City Council Districts in 2021. We are currently reaching out to candidates with questionnaires and conducting interviews. Please watch our social media or reach out for information on when these interviews will take place. We hope to talk about endorsements at our February meeting.
As a small group that wants to put (zoom?) boots-on-the-ground in every district we endorse in, we have a very high threshold for endorsement: 66%. To be eligible to vote, you must have previously attended one of our meetings in the previous 12 months and paid membership dues of $25 (if you have trouble with this amount, please reach out, we will continue to make appropriate exceptions).
We will be conducting interviews and putting them & the questionnaire on our website and social media platforms. See our "2021 Elections" tab for videos and questionnaires.
Congratulations to our newly elected Executive Committee! We can't wait to see what ideas and energy they bring to the group:
- Jennifer M. Berkley
- Ellen Bilofsky
- Jess Byrne (Treasurer)
- Gerald Cook
- David S Goldberg
- Sarah Herbst
- David Asher Karopkin
- Nora Nussbaum
- Naomi Rabeeya
- John Wasserman

This will be an online meeting. SCBUP members that are eligible to vote must have attended 2 of our events since May 2019 (including today's), and must have paid $25 annual membership. We can forego the dues requirement for members that need financial assistance.
