“As the President of Stars and Stripes Democratic Club, it is my privilege and purpose to represent the immigrant population’s political voice but also to ensure that the communities of the 49th Assembly District are represented,” said Democratic Club President Irene Chu. “Acting DA Eric Gonzalez has carried the responsibilities of the office and proved his abilities after receiving the position last year. I believe once Eric is elected, as the first Puerto Rican-American District Attorney in New York State, this will encourage all minority communities and show that immigrant communities are enthusiastic to serve for the people.”
