Democratic District Leader Ari Kagan: Report to the People in 45th Assembly District

Thanks to the strong support from his constituents, Ari Kagan has continued his great work at the unpaid position of State Committeeman/District Leader in 45th AD. His main goals are to improve quality of life for local residents, to support credible Democratic candidates for various political positions and to bring communities together.

Together with his co-leader and State Committeewoman Margarita Kagan (no relation to Ari Kagan), he expanded the strong and diverse Democratic Club – Bay Democrats. With club headquarters conveniently located at the center of the 45 Assembly District, Bay Democrats became a unifying and influential political force in Southern Brooklyn.
