While Democratic Party establishment figures spent election night enjoying fancy food with the media and their corporate sponsors at Kountry Kitchen’s 910 North Event Center, newly elected City-County Councilor Jesse Brown was with community members, organizers, and students at the Indianapolis Liberation Center. Brown is the first openly-socialist member of the Council who, in the May primaries, beat incumbent Zach Adamson, who represented District 13 since 2012 and has, since 2015, served as the Council’s Vice-President.
Watch and listen to Brown’s short remarks after winning almost 80% of the votes in District 13 as part of the “Assembly of the Unrepresented” People’s Election Night Watch Party.
“It’s about all of us”
