Review Of Our Oct 30,2016 Meeting With State Senator Marty Golden.
Posted by Brooklyn Young Republican Club
“On October 30th 2016, the Brooklyn Young Republican Club held its monthly meeting in Bay Ridge Manor located in the heart of Bay Ridge. This months meeting was not only informative, and captivating, but also “Golden”. The reasoning behind it being the speaker at this month’s meeting; the only Republican State Senator in Brooklyn, Marty J Golden. The President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club Brandon Washington, interviewed Senator Golden about important issues facing Brooklyn and New York City today.
A “hot topic” was drugs, and drug rehabilitation. The Senator admitted to the audience that he did not always hold the opinion he has on drugs. Yet, only recently did he become more understanding and aware of the benefits that rehabilitation can have on drug addicts, and the threat of becoming addicted to certain drugs like heroin after using it just two times. After the interview was over a lengthy Q & A session took place between members and guests of the BYRC and Senator Golden. The Senator informatively and elaborately answered all the questions from the audience regarding issues ranging from education, and bullying, to candidate training. The meeting was adjourned with a few Oreo and Chips Ahoy cookies, as well as individual photo opportunities with Senator Golden.”
