The County Committee meeting is rapidly approaching. On September 27 at 6:00 PM, County Committee members will meet to discuss the future of the Democratic Party in Brooklyn. This event is open to the public.
We believe in reform through active participation and showing up is #RepYourBlock's number one priority.
So, what can you do?
The meeting will be held at the Goldstein Performing Arts Center at Kingsborough Community College. Mark your calendars and RSVP. The location is not easily accessible by subway. New Kings Democrats has set up a ride-share in order to provide transportation to as many people as possible. Complete this form no later than September 24.
Are you a member of Kings County Democratic Committee?
If you are unable to attend the meeting, you need to ensure your proxy card is appropriately designated. The party boss notoriously builds power by collecting proxies — you have likely received (multiple) messages urging you to sign your proxy over to party leadership. But remember, you can choose to give your proxy card to any County Committee member who can be at the meeting by 6 PM — a friend, neighbor, or fellow RYBer.
#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 3,000-member Kings County Democratic Committee (a.k.a. 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. Sign up now for the 2020 campaign - the work starts now.
Sign up below to receive updates on September's County Committee meeting, learn about organizing opportunities with #RepYourBlock, and stay connected as we help candidates run to represent Brooklyn in 2020.
