Socialist organizer David Alexis announces primary challenge to State Sen. Kevin Parker

Democratic socialist organizer David Alexis has announced plans to mount a primary challenge for central Brooklyn State Sen. Kevin Parker, as the 2022 election cycle heats up with a number of left-leaning contenders expected.

Alexis — an East Flatbush resident, community organizer, member of the Democratic Socialists of America, and ride-share driver — says he felt motivated to run after years of organizing around health care and workers’ rights in eastern Brooklyn, issues the candidate said were matters of survival for him and his family.
