Since Antonio Reynoso was a small boy, the power of community has been an inspiration. As NYC Council Member for District 34 he worked with community advocates to: safeguard affordable housing, save child care and senior centers, and reduce the unfair volume of sanitation traffic that was lowering air quality and increasing risk to pedestrians and cyclists, to name a few of his efforts to improve the lives of his constituents.
On winning the November election for Brooklyn Borough President, Reynoso has been recruiting a team that includes: as Co-Chairs Marty Markowitz (Former Brooklyn Borough President), Arlenis Morel (executive director of Make the Road New York), and Una Clarke (former NYC Council Member); District Leader Kristina Naplatarski is the inauguration chair; and as committee members U.S. Representative Nydia Velázquez, Anne Pasternak (director of Brooklyn Museum), Rabbi David Niederman (executive director of United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg), Eddie Bautista (executive director of NYC Environmental Justice Alliance), Gregory Calliste (CEO of NYC Health + Hospitals/Woodhul), Michael Rochford (executive director of St. Nicks Alliance), Reggie Nance (associate state director of multicultural engagement, AARP), Rob Solano (co-founder and executive director of CUFFH), Scott Short (CEO of RiseBoro Community Partnership), and more.

“The Committee looks forward to supporting Brooklyn Borough President Reynoso as he is deeply committed to Brooklyn to using powers of the Brooklyn Borough President’s Office to find innovative ways for Brooklyn to grow sustainably and equitably,” said Michael Rochford, executive director of St. Nicks Alliance and member of the transition committee.
