Rebecca Weintraub is a candidate to represent Roosevelt Island and the Upper

meeting and speaking with residents about her campaign and local issues of
concern.

Meet Rebecca Weintraub.

Ms Weintraub’s website reports:

As your District Leader, Rebecca will work to ensure that the New York County
Democratic Party remains transparent, accountable, and responsive to our
community’s needs. She will advocate for building a diverse and inclusive
county leadership structure that stays true to our Party’s core progressive
values. The position of District Leader is especially important in Part A of
the 76th Assembly District because Roosevelt Island is controlled by the New
York State government through the Roosevelt Island Operating Company
(RIOC)….

According to Manhattan Democrats:

A District Leader is an unpaid volunteer elected official. All formal
parties in New York State are required to have at least one District Leader
(DL) per Assembly District (AD). These positions are subject to primary
elections every two years. This ostensibly guarantees that any party with
formal status in New York State (e.g. a permanent ballot line) is
democratically governed by its members. In essence, the District Leader is
the representative of the party members in their district to that political
party’s apparatus.
