The Brooklyn Democratic Party represents and advocates for Democrats from every corner of the borough. We’re one of the largest Democratic organizations in the U.S., with 1.2 million registered voters and 42 District Leaders among 21 Assembly Districts.

Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn is the Assembly member and State Committee Woman/District Leader for New York State’s 42nd Assembly District representing Flatbush, East Flatbush, Midwood and Ditmas Park in Brooklyn.

In January, she became the first Black woman to lead a county party in New York City when she was nominated as Chair of the Kings County Democratic County Committee, one of the largest county parties in America.

The Democratic Party as a whole is governed by committees of registered Democrats, from the national level down to state and community-level.

Every two years, Brooklyn Democrats in each assembly district (the electoral districts for Assembly members) elect two district leaders.

High-profile guests like Gov. Kathy Hochul, U.S. Sens. Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, state Attorney General Letitia James, New York City Mayor Eric Adams, Reps. Hakeem Jeffries  Dan Goldman,  Jumaane Williams, Rep. Gregory Meeks, Thomas P. DiNapoli, New York State Comptroller, Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, Former Bronx Borough President , Ruben Diaz Jr, Brooklyn’s own, Simcha Eichenstein – Assembly District 48, lieutenant governor Antonio Delgado  a host of other politicos attended the packed event. Collaboration was perhaps the guiding theme of the evening, underscored of course with a celebration of Brooklyn’s role in the Democratic political machine.

“I am declaring Brooklyn the epicenter of political power – not just in New York City, not just in the state of New York, but the entire United States of America,” Hochul said, to packed house at Giando’s on the Water, people cheered and clapped.

Schumer, called to the stage, tried his hand with a few freestyle verses. “All right everybody, my name is Chuck. I bring you luck,” he began, before pivoting to urge the crowd to use its political power to defeat former President Donald Trump and to increase the party’s majority in the U.S. Senate.

New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams said. “From my Assembly member, to me, to all across the borough, we have so much power in Brooklyn if we can just get together, raise our voice and make sure the communities that need the most help get it.”

Mayor Eric Adams went on to say, some of the Most Powerful Political leaders in who of the USA, are from Brooklyn, NY. He went on to say, He is from Brooklyn, Senator Chuck Schumer, Majority Leader, Attorney General Letitia James, New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries of New York, all from Brooklyn New York who went on to do great things as political leaders.

Steven D. Cohn’s Annual Breakfast @ Juniors Restaurant Brooklyn New York-2021

Friday morning, October 29, breakfast at Junior’s restaurant again brought the most powerful Democrats in New York State together.

Founded and hosted for more than three decades by attorney and longtime District Leader Steve Cohn, famous for his talent “bringing people together,” the annual breakfast does exactly that.

Governors, Mayor, and Governors and Mayors-To- Be would not miss this event.

De Blasio was among at least a half-dozen high-powered New York politicians who stopped by to shake hands and chat with the wheelers and dealers of the Brooklyn machine over coffee and a spread of lox and bagels as they eye Tuesday’s general election and the coming June primary for state races.

Gov. Kathy Hochul stopped by and received a polite reception as she offered a few brief remarks to the crowded room, in what will decidedly be Attorney General Letitia James’ territory.

“I feel the weight of history on my shoulders because it’s my responsibility to demonstrate that a woman can govern with strength, but with heart and compassion,” she said.

James — a veteran of Brooklyn politics, who once represented the borough on the City Council — showed up roughly an hour later and received a rousing introduction from the chairwoman of the Kings County party, Assemblywoman Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn.

“Our rights are being threatened each and every day,” James said in short remarks that felt like they could easily be incorporated into a stump speech, though she did not address her specific plans for 2022.

It was World Liberty TV, Teams 10th year covering Steve Cohn’s annual breakfast in our World Liberty TV, Political Channels and blogs, we like to thank Steve Cohn our dear friend for his kind invites and Ezra Friedlander for inviting us on a yearly basis.
