The NY primary election is upon us. Our last episode talked about the race for governor, but further down the ballot is another really important, lesser known topic: State Committee aka District Leaders. In this special episode, Arpan is joined by Don't Sleep friend and resource, Billy Richling. Billy is a Brooklyn-based former local journalist, currently serving as Communications Director for the Brooklyn Young Democrats. He's also an active part of a coalition of political clubs called Brooklyn Can't Wait. Their mission right now - reform the Brooklyn Democratic Party, starting with District Leaders. Billy sheds light on the mysteries surrounding district leaders: who they are, what they do, and why they are important. And he shares some resources to help you get informed before you vote for YOUR district leaders on June 28.
