Please RSVP below and join us Wednesday, May 25th for our membership meeting.
There is much to discuss with the upheaval in redistricting and the primaries. It's been a whirlwind several weeks. We will take stock of what's happened and the implications for DID and Lower Manhattan more broadly.
Our special guest this month will be CM Christopher Marte. He will talk about his first five months in office and how we can all help him continue to fight for our neighborhoods
Tonight we will also debate and revote on our endorsement for NYS Lt. Governor. With DID rescinding its endorsement of Brian Benjamin, we held a Lt. Governor candidate forum in partnership with Grand Street Democrats (GSD) on May 9. We will post the video when it is available. We encourage all members who did not attend the forum to view the video and join us for the endorsement discussion and vote.
The recent court ruling regarding the district lines and primary date for Congress and State Senate does not directly affect the state-wide races of Governor, Lt. Governor, Attorney General and Comptroller. While it's possible that the primary date for these offices could be changed, at this moment that date remains set for June 28.
