A Political Star On The Rise
On what has been the most humid evening of summer so far, a rather diverse group of several dozens of friends, family and supporters of 42nd Assembly District Democratic State Committeeman (Male District Leader) Josue (Josh) Pierre crowded into Tonel Restaurant and Lounge in East Flatbush to celebrate his selection as the replacement to succeed Ed Powell in that position and to add to his coffers as he prepares to face the voters in the Democratic Party Primary in September.
A steady stream of speakers took turns to rain praises on and offer encouragement to Josh, including Council Member Jumaane D. Williams, Assembly Member Rodneyse Bichotte, Democratic State Committee Members Cory Provost of the 48th Assembly District and Nancy Tong of the 47th Assembly District.
Other luminaries at the event included Jackson Rockingster of HABNET, John Wasserman of Brooklyn Young Democrats, Jeff Lindor of Groomed Success, and Rubain Dorancy of Haitian American Association for Political Action (HAAPA).
Also in attendance but did not speak were Civil Court Judge Wan and Ernest Skinner, Community Liaison of Council Member Jumaane D. Williams,
Obviously touched by the salutes, Josue Pierre went to great pains to recognize several persons in the room who have been the anchors of support for not only this campaign but from when he first sought the office unsuccessfully against Ed Powell.
He then outlined his ” Opportunity for All ” agenda, which includes Affordable Housing, Jobs, Education, Small Business and Entrepreneurship, and Safe Streets.
Pierre was was heartedly applauded when he referenced the unfortunate circumstance whereby his mother was wounded by a stray bullet while talking with a neighbor and pledged that they will stay firmly rooted in East Flatbush.
