Bronx District Leaders and State Committee Members

District Leader

One female and one male district leader represent the voters within their Assembly district (the one exception is the the 82nd Assembly district which is split into Part A & Part B, therefore they are represented by four district leaders).  District Leaders official duties include electing the Chair of the county party, appointing election workers at local poll sites, selecting the Democratic nominees for vacant Civil Court judgeships, and working with Assembly members in organizing political activities in their districts (voter registration drives, community engagement, etc.).

Requirements: District Leaders are unpaid elected party officials who serve two year terms and must reside within the district they represent.  

State Committee Member

One female and one male state committee member represent the voters within their Assembly district.  Their main responsibility is representing their district by attending and voting at their respective political party’s state convention and annual meetings.  A strong State Committee Member also serves as a liaison between the community, local elected officials, city government, and political candidates.

Requirements: State Committee Members are unpaid elected party officials who serve two year terms and must reside within the district they represent.
