Kings County Committee governs the Brooklyn Democratic Party. It is made up of two District Leaders from each Assembly District in Brooklyn; one male, one female which makes up the executive committee of the County Committee. The general membership of Kings County Committee is made up of 2-4 members from each election district in each Assembly District. County Committee chooses local judicial candidates, chooses Democratic party candidates in special elections (this is HUGE, 1 in 3 current NY legislators were elected in special elections), and creates the Brooklyn Democratic Party platform.
Back to our original question, What is a District Leader?
District Leaders, also called State Committee members engage their neighbors in issues that are important to them and can elevate those conversations to County Committee. As members of the Executive Committee they have a unique opportunity to shape the way the Brooklyn Democratic Party focuses on those issues. District Leaders also elect the Party Chair of the Kings County Committee, currently held by Frank Seddio.
