At Assembly member Rodneyse Bichotte’s Shirley Chisholm Democratic club on March 10 Josh Pierre announced he is running for the position of male district leader of Assembly District 42. Pierre’s candidacy – like Bichotte’s election to the Assembly – reflects the increasing political power of the community, writes Kings County Politics’ Dylan Johnson.

Pierre is currently the chairman of the Assembly district’s Democratic County Committee, Brooklyn’s official committee for the party.

Asked about what his main goal would be as District Leader, Pierre said that civic engagement would be a top priority. “The whole idea of civic engagement is to get the whole community to understand the process and be empowered to voice their concerns. I also want to see the Democratic part of Brooklyn to be responsive to the community. Brooklyn is the largest democratic county organization in the United States.”

In his speech, Pierre spoke of the shift in local political engagement. See what he had to say, at Kings County Politics.
