Kings County Politics and its Editor-In Chief Stephen Witt, in partnership with What’s The 411, is conducting interviews with candidates and local electeds from Brooklyn leading up to this year’s National and State elections and next year’s City elections.
One of the more interesting state races coming up is the Sept. 13 Democratic Primary for the 19th Senate District position. The district also is one of the most diverse in Brooklyn encompassing Canarsie, East New York, Mill Basin, Bergen Beach and small parts of Brownsville, Sheepshead Bay and Marine Park.
The candidates are incumbent Sen. Roxanne Persaud and longtime Canarsie political activist Mercedes Narcisse.
The following edited interview with Narcisse took place at the BRIC studios on Fulton Street in Downtown Brooklyn. KCP and What’s The 411 is also inviting Persaud to appear on the show.
