In many cities around the country, tomorrow is Election Day, primaries, in fact. In Brooklyn’s 10 Congressional district, Kevin Powell is running to unseat longtime incumbent Rep. Edolphus Towns. I had a chance to interview Kevin on WRFB a few weeks ago, and this is our full conversation.
I don’t live in the 10th, so I can’t vote for him. However, if you do, and if what he’s saying makes sense to you, consider giving him your support.
During this conversation, Kevin talks about:
- His evolution from writer to congressional candidate
- The issues he cares about and what he wants to do for Brooklyn
- His political mentors
- The importance of not overstaying his welcome
