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.
