#RepYourBlock is a community-led campaign of New Kings Democrats to help everyday Brooklynites, like you, reform local government by winning a seat on the Kings County Democratic Committee (a.k.a. the ground floor of the Brooklyn Democratic Party).
Why #RepYourBlock? We all think of Brooklyn as overwhelmingly Democratic, yet decisions about the borough’s Democratic priorities and candidates are made by a few party insiders. It’s time to fix this by making sure everyone – in particular those traditionally excluded from the electoral process – can access County Committee and transform the Democratic Party. It’s time Brooklyn set the standard for inclusive and accountable local politics.
It’s too late to run for a seat on the 2020 County Committee, but you can still be appointed! There are over 3,000 unfilled seats. Elected County Committee members will vote to fill those vacancies with other Brooklyn Democrats who are interested in serving.
If you’re committed to building a more transparent, inclusive and accountable Brooklyn Democratic Party, sign up to be considered for an appointment. We’ll also keep you posted on how you can petition for a seat in 2022.
Nominations through #RepYourBlock are due this Tuesday, December 22! Sign up below!
