The Brooklyn Democratic Party Executive Committee voted Monday night to adopt three amendments to the Party Rules, and nominated community activist Kenesha Traynham-Cooper to fill the vacancy of former District Leader Annette M. Robinson in the 56th Assembly District, which encompasses the Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights sections of Brooklyn.

Henry Butler, Male District Leader from the 56th AD, was elected vice chair of the executive committee.

The party said the rule amendments allow it to have “more timely and meaningful virtual public forums without the need for the lengthy procedures of an organizational meeting.”

“Committees are an essential part of the democratic legislative process and are used by the US Congress and the Senate,” the party said.

“With over 1.2 million party members, it’s a practical move to utilize our party’s long-standing Committee on Resolutions to ensure that resolutions are passed in a timely and efficient manner,” it added.

Party Chair Haitian American Assembly Member Rodneyse Bichotte-Hermelyn, said, “We’ve streamlined and strengthened the democratic adoption of new resolutions by having the Committee on Resolutions vet them first.

“We congratulate our new District Leader Kenesha Traynham-Coope and Vice Chair Henry Butler, and thank Annette M. Robinson for her years of dedicated public service as a vice chair and district leader,” added the daughter of Haitian immigrants, who represents the 42nd Assembly District in Brooklyn.
