President Joel Acevedo on behalf of the BKYR issued the following statement on the Presidential election.
On behalf of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club I congratulate President-elect Joseph R. Biden and Vice-President-elect Kamala D. Harris. This is an historic election that deserves America’s praise for that we have the first Black woman ever elected to the Vice Presidency. America has a tall order ahead of us and only together can we get pass this inflection point in our history. To echo the words of Gov. Larry Hogan, “Everyone, regardless of political affiliation, should want him to succeed because we need our country to succeed.” Many Americans desperately want all sides to come together for bipartisan, common sense solutions to the serious problems that plague this country. The time to tune out the extremes is now. We can no longer adhere and enable toxic politics. We must come together as the United States of America and continue to advance life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for all.Joel M. Acevedo, President of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club.
