Democrat Brooklyn City Council Member Ari Kagan told the Dem Party to pound sand and announced he will switch political parties from Democratic to Republican. Kagan said:
“Over the last several years in my personal humble opinion, the Democratic Party in New York became moving to the left at such a speed that they could not even keep up.
“And on issue after issue every year, every month, I started to feel that it’s not me leaving the Democratic Party, but the Democratic Party very quickly started to leave me.
“Every month I found myself like ‘what am I doing in the Democratic Party?’

“In my own district, in southern Brooklyn, everywhere I knocked [on] the doors people saying ‘when are you switching to the Republican Party?
“I believe right now, the Democratic Party is doing everything possible in New York City to make everybody less safe,” he said.
Council Minority Leader Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) said:
“We’re happy to have him as part of our conference.
“And I think he’ll do a great job serving the people of this district.”
Dem City Council Speaker Adrienne Adams said Kagan’s decision “will impact” his committee assignments:
“New Yorkers have expectations for their representatives to carry the values that they were elected to prioritize over politics.
“Our Democratic Conference will continue to consistently place the public interest of our city over politics without Council Member Kagan.”
In NYC criminals have more rights than law abiding citizens. I’ve been trying to help my constituents who were victimized by this lawlessness. Nobody wanted to evict a convicted felon who illegally broke into their homes & started to rent them to others!https://t.co/BtAp6jnA2X
