Schumer swears in Narcisse


Senate Majority Leader Charles “Chuck” Schumer on Saturday swore in newly-elected Council Member Mercedes Narcisse at a community celebration at South Shore High School in Canarsie, Brooklyn.

Haitian-born Narcisse, who represents the 46th Council District, was joined at the ceremony by hundreds of constituents and Who’s Who of New York politics.

Frank Shea, Narcisse’s deputy chief of staff and director of communications, told Caribbean Life that the council woman was “joined in attendance by colleagues in government.”

They included Mayor Eric Adams; Congress Members Yvette Clarke and Hakeem Jeffries; Attorney General Letitia James; New York State Comptroller Tom DiNapoli; New York City Public Advocate Jumaane Williams; New York City Comptroller Brad Lander; Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso; Assemblyman Nick Perry; State Sen. Roxanne Persaud; Assemblywoman Jamie Williams; “and a bevy of colleagues from the New York City Council.”
