At its Second Quarter Meeting, the members of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club made nominations for the next administration of the club.  The following nominees will be voted on at the Club’s Annual Meeting later this spring:

President: Glenn P. Nocera (Kensington)
Vice President: Roy M. Antoun (Dyker Heights)
Secretary: Osher S. Gordon (Crown Heights)
Treasurer: Louis A. Perrotta III (Park Slope)
Board of Directors: Jonathan J. Judge (Flatbush), Samuel M. Rivera (Williamsburg), Christina M. Bennett (Windsor Terrace), Harold A. Solis, Moshe B. Muratov (Midwood) and Alexander Aizman (Sheepshead Bay)

Current President Jonathan J. Judge announced at the meeting that he would not be seeking a fourth term as President, along with current Vice President Samuel M. Rivera and Secretary Christina M. Bennett.  As the immediate past-President, Judge will be serving as Chairman of the Board of Directors, and Rivera and Bennett will be seeking seats on the Board of Directors.

“After three years of serving you as President of the Club,” Judge stated in his announcement, “our organization is stronger than it ever was in recent memory.   Because of that, we are best prepared for the next generation of leadership in our organization to take us further down the road toward Republican principles and reform that we’ve embarked on three years ago.  I am proud that my good friend and colleague Glenn Nocera, who is infinitely more experienced than myself in politics, has decided to seek the Presidency of the Club, along with my other good friends and colleagues Roy Antoun, Osher Gordon and Lou Perrotta, who are also seeking club office.  I am honored to have served as your President these past three years, and I look forward to continue walking with you on this sometimes tough but very necessary path of political activism for all Americans.”

Nocera, nominee for Club President, stated, “I want to thank everyone who nominated me for President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club.  I pledge to continue this club’s great tradition of reform and cultivating the future leaders of our great borough. For instance, our Club’s first President, Seth Low, later became Mayor of Brooklyn, and when the consolidation of New York City took place in 1898, he became one of the first Mayors of New York City.  I especially want to thank President Jonathan Judge for all of his hard work and service to our club.  Jonathan should feel proud of all that he has accomplished as President of New York City’s oldest Republican Club, which has been going strong since 1880.”

The details of the Club’s Annual Meeting will be announced shortly.
