A Conversation with Kevin Powell

T he race for Brooklyn’s 10th Congressional District ends tomorrow. Hear what one of the candidates has to say. p5rn7vb

@kevin_powell

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
