The Bay Democrats club had another great monthly meeting. Despite rainy, cold weather, club members came to listen to political updates, to participate in important discussion and to have a good time in a good company. It was nice to see many community leaders from different neighborhoods of the 45th Assembly district.
Bay Democrats welcomed Councilman Chaim Deutsch who talked about good work of his office and his work as new Chair of the Veterans Committee.
We listened to interesting and productive presentations of several Democratic candidates for Congress in 11th District (Staten Island and Southern Brooklyn): Michael De Cillis, Paul Sperling and Radhakrishna Mohan.
Brooklyn Civil Court Judges Steven Mostofsky, Lilian Wan, Michael Gerstein & Theresa Ciccotto (they are all running this year for State Supreme Court judicial seats) spoke about their legal work and community involvement.
Ross Barkan who is running for State Senate, talked about his vision for transportation improvements in Southern Brooklyn.
And all attendees had a chance to say a few words about themselves. It was wonderful to see such a diverse group of concerned and educated voters.
