Elections this year include the race for the New York State Senate with primaries under 90 days away. In Brooklyn’s District 21, incumbent candidate Kevin Parker is facing a new Democrat challenger: David Alexis.

“First and foremost, I’m a husband to a wife who has sickle-cell disease, which is where I started as an activist to fight on her behalf, I am the father of two little Afro-Latina girls, my family is from Haiti and I wanted to truly become a provider—to provide for my family,” said the 33-year-old candidate and resident of Flatbush.

Alexis said a fresh set of eyes is needed for District 21, as he believes Senator Parker has not delivered “a vision of the future of leadership.”
