Brooklyn Assemblymember Rodneyse Bichotte Hermelyn is seeking another term as Brooklyn Democratic Party chair, the Daily News and other publications reported recently. She made the announcement at a Zoom forum earlier this month.

In her statement, she mentioned important issues such as gun control, abortion and voting rights.

However, at the Brooklyn Democratic Party meeting at the Coney Island Amphitheater on Sept. 21, delegates got bogged down in procedural matters and debates over rules. At 11:30 p.m., power was turned off, abruptly dispersing the meeting, which was expected to ratify Bichotte Hermelyn for a second term.

A new meeting is expected for early October, according to The City.
