rivera brannan 277x143

Justin Brannan and Carlina Rivera are two of the City Council's new members, elected last year and inaugurated at the start of this year. Each succeeded a term-limited Council member that they worked for as an aide, so they know city government well. But, there's nothing like being the elected official yourself, as they explain on this episode of the podcast. The two new Council members, both Democrats, discuss the transition process, their top priorities, and this political moment in New York City.
