Live in Brooklyn? Run for Office!

Holla Back, the blog where people post photos of creeps who harass them on the street, lets us know about the movement to bring folks into the political fold through a little known office called County Committee.

According to Holla Back, there are 5000 of these seats across Brooklyn, and half of them are empty. To run, all you have to do is be a registered, voting Democrat living in Brooklyn over the age of 18 -- and you have to get about 20 -25 signatures from your neighbors.

More details at New Kings Democrats , an organization which hopes to help produce the next generation of Brooklyn political leaders.
