The New York State Young Democrats Convention will be held for the first time in the Bronx this summer, thanks to a bid from the Bronx Young Democrats. The group submitted a proposal highlighting their manifesto in order to host the biennial event, which draws more than 150 young Democrats from around New York.
“We’re very proud of them,” said Bronx Democratic County Committee Chair Marcos Crespo, one of the group’s longtime advocates. “They did a great job putting their proposal together demonstrating what their organization has to offer. And the fact that so many good things are happening in the Bronx, I think part of the conversation has to be young new leadership in the borough and the Young Dems have done a great job putting that together.”
The convention is scheduled for May 20 to 22. A location has yet to be determined.”
