Joel M. Acevedo, President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, has made the following statement:
“Dear Club Members,
As some of you know, I’m a reservist in the Army National Guard, and we are being activated to assist with efforts relating to coronavirus containment measures in New York State. This means that I will temporarily be unable to handle the day-to-day tasks as President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club. In my absence, per our bylaws, Vice President Andrew J. Windsor II will assume those day-to-day functions as acting President effective Wednesday, March 18, 2020, until I return.
I urge everyone to be safe, stay healthy, and give your full support to Andrew and the club’s activities during this time until my activation has concluded. Wishing you all the best until that time.”
Andrew J. Windsor II, Vice President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club, has made the following statement:
Firstly, I want to commend Joel on his dedication to serve the people of our state in his capacity as a reservist in the Army National Guard. Selfless citizens working together for the greater good during difficult times, like now, are what saves lives and makes America an incredible place to call home. I look forward to continuing the programming and activities of the club that Joel has spearheaded and, beyond that, we’re all looking forward to his swift return. Stay safe, good luck and Godspeed, Joel.”
