Public servant and City Council candidate Carlos Menchaca will open a ‘Get Out the Vote’ office in Red Hook to kick off the last week of his campaign. “It gives me great pleasure to be opening up a GET OUT THE VOTE campaign office in Red Hook, Brooklyn today. It was in this neighborhood, on these same streets where I was first inspired to run for City Council. The Realty Collective office space at 351 Van Brunt was instrumental in our general emergency operation post-Sandy. The leadership of Victoria Hagman, Carolina Salguero and others who ran the communications and general information hub out of this space for the community was tremendous!” During the next seven days, the office will serve as headquarters for the campaign’s effort to target Brooklynites who believe in active and vocal representation for their neighborhoods, and ensure they get to the polls on Primary Day. Menchaca will deliver remarks, and there will be opportunities for photo and video.
