One of the most appealing attributes of Kings County Democratic Party Chairman Hon. Frank Seddio is his culinary skills. Simply said, Seddio loves to cook and his annual holiday house party attracts some of the borough’s most distinguished civic leaders who always look forward to celebrating the season together while enjoying Seddio’s cooking.

He held this much-anticipated festive gathering at his home on Tuesday. And not only did Seddio deck all the halls, but the entire house was all decked out for the season, as folks from all over the borough continue to drive by and gasp at the dazzling light display.

Each year Seddio invites family, friends, elected officials and community leaders to leave politics behind and stop by to enjoy good food, drinks and warm camaraderie.

Elected officials attending this year’s event included state Sen. Roxanne Persaud, New York state Assemblymember Jaime Williams, District 41 City Councilmember Darlene Mealy (D-Bedford-Stuyvesant-Ocean Hill-Brownsville, East Flatbush, Crown Heights) and District 47 City Councilmember Mark Treyger (D-Bensonhurst-Coney Island-Gravesend-Sea Gate).

Treyger told the Brooklyn Eagle, “The opportunity to reconnect with many of my fellow leaders is a powerful reminder that, from Brooklyn Heights to Brownsville, they are a dynamic group well-suited to serve the voters of our diverse and thriving borough.”

Also celebrating alongside Seddio were district leaders Darma V. Diaz, Jacob Gold, Ari Kagan, Hon. Lori Citron Knipel, Sue Ann Partnow, Shirley Patterson, Joanne Seminara, Nancy Tong and Tommy Torres.

“I was grateful to be there because it’s always such a warm atmosphere,” Kagan said. “Secondly, Frank Seddio is a great cook, and thirdly I enjoy seeing all the holiday decorations. This celebration is about the district leaders coming together as people, not as politicians, just to enjoy themselves. And there’s no better host than Frank Seddio.”

Knipel echoed Kagan’s sentiments, “The holiday party is an annual festive event and a chance for an intimate circle of dedicated leaders and elected officials to get together in the holiday spirit and enjoy Frank’s fabulous cooking and holiday decorations.”
