The Grand Street Democrats sent along these photos from the new political club’s first public meeting, which was held last night.

Among those attending were newly elected City Council member Carlina Rivera (District 2) and City Council member Margaret Chin, who was just re-elected to serve a third term in District 1.

The new club covers the 65th Assembly District, Part A (Grand Street cooperatives and a few other surrounding buildings). In September, Lee Berman and Caroline Laskow were elected to serve as local district leaders in Part A. They are co-founders of Grand Street Dems. Berman and Laskow defeated Jacob Goldman and Karen Blatt of the Truman Democratic Club, an organization closely identified with former Assemblyman Sheldon Silver.
