LID Endorses Resolution Calling for County Dems Party Financial Oversight


The Kings County Democratic Party is the largest local party affiliate in the nation.

Yet, as recently made known, it is currently in financial distress. As proud members of our local party, we have concerns about its financial oversight - an issue which has drawn criticism for its lack of transparency and accountability.

Last Friday, a resolution was submitted for consideration at tonight’s county committee meeting calling for a meeting of the committee’s dormant finance committee and an audit of its finances. This resolution was drafted by a coalition of progressive reform clubs, including LID.

We believe that the finance committee, as with all organs of the party, deserve grassroots participation. Community representation, including the LGBTQ community, deserve a seat at the table - how are patty’s finances are spent is an LGBTQ issue.
