Join us for our monthly general meeting where we will hold our very first candidate endorsement votes.
We will have brief statements and a Q&A with every candidate running for Assembly in District 51 (Sunset Park, Red Hook, parts of Bay Ridge, South Slope, Gowanus, and Borough Park): Katherine Walsh, Felix Ortiz (incumbent), Marcela Mitaynes, and Genesis Aquino. A candidate for (male) District Leader, Julio Peña III running against incumbent Felix Ortiz, will also speak. Then we will vote on whom to endorse.
Because of the number of candidates and needing time to vote, we will start the meeting promptly at 4pm!
A reminder on voting: In order to be eligible to vote in our candidate endorsement elections, you must be a member in good standing. This means, you must have attended one of our meetings or events since February of 2019 and you must have paid your membership duesof $25. If you cannot make it to this meeting and you are a member in good standing, you can make an absentee vote by e-mailing your candidates preferences to [email protected]
We will also discuss additional political races around the area, running for County Committee, and advocacy for important issues.
