Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn appeared on campus at Brooklyn College — a great institution in her 42nd Assembly District — to host her 8th Annual State of the District Address last week, providing an overview of progress made to “uplift all Brooklynites” in Assembly District 42 and sharing her legislative goals for 2023.
As newly-appointed Assembly Majority Whip and the Leader of the Brooklyn Democratic Party, Bichotte Hermelyn’s highly-attended event also provided an overarching outlook for Brooklyn, the City and the State — from boosting the economy, combating crime, the upcoming elections, and more.
Facilitated by community advocates Doriel Inez Larrier and Steven Cohen, well-known Brooklynites spoke in support of Bichotte Hermelyn during the Address, including Councilmembers Farah Louis and Rita Joseph, Pastor Rev. James Thornton, Father Jean-Yvon Pierre; Rabbi Aryeh Ralbag; and Imam Maaz Ali, Brooklyn College President Michelle Anderson, and more.
