Ready to hit the streets in support of one of Brooklyn's most impactful state representatives?
Then join Brooklyn Young Democrats at Boerum Park on Sunday, 8/21 at 1:00pm to canvass in support of State Senator Andrew Gounardes as he runs in the competitive Democratic primary in State Senate District 26.
As State Senator, Andrew has fought for landmark investments in CUNY, new and innovative approaches to street safety, and better support for our state’s robust public workforce. Join us as we knock on doors, connect with neighbors, and get the word out for Andrew!
To receive BYD's endorsement in a race, a candidate must receive at least 51% of the vote. The results of our NY-10 endorsement poll are in: because no candidate reached the 51% threshold, BYD will not endorse in the race.
For the purposes of transparency and to give a sense of where our membership stands, we'd like to share the results of the ballot below:
Carlina Rivera: 43%
Yuh-Line Niou: 36%
Jo Anne Simon: 15%
Mondaire Jones: 3%
Dan Goldman: 3%
Liz Holtzman: 0%
Like the district itself, our membership has diverse opinions on who will best represent NY-10 in Congress. We're grateful to the candidates for participating in our process, and for taking seriously the issues important to young people in NY-10 and across Brooklyn!
