Rodneyse Bichotte elected to head Brooklyn Democratic Party
Rodneyse Bichotte became the first woman to head the Brooklyn Democratic Party on Monday night.
The State assemblywoman was elected chairperson of the group during a meeting held at the Thomas Jefferson Democratic Club in Canarsie.
The assemblywoman thanked former head Frank Seddio, while celebrating her win.
“It’s a very humbling experience,” she said. “It’s historic and I’m really excited.”
The vote was 39-0 with one abstention by former Assemblywoman Joan Millman.
Seddio, a longtime leader and power broker in the borough, played a key role in picking Bichotte as his replacement.
Bichotte promised to make the Kings County Democratic Committee more transparent and more financially solvent.
“I plan to have the district leaders play an active role in the fundraising,” she said.
