“I have worked side by side with Katie on County Committee over the past year and a half. I nominated and elected her as president of our Assembly District for her calm leadership style. A Sunset Park native, an urban planner, an affordable housing advocate, and a candidate who promotes a green economy. Katie has the unique and specific perspective to serve the community with its rapidly growing population and economy. Assembly District 51 needs Katie Walsh.”
“In 2018, I coordinated Rep Your Block for AD51, Katie Walsh was one of the district’s 65 candidates. That she was special was apparent then. Katie planned and executed our district’s most successful campaign: she recruited 12 volunteers; she explained County Committee to them and trained them to canvass; she created a persuasive handout; and organized door knocking for two solid weekends. She won 70% of the vote.
“Katie Walsh is on it! She not only understands issues facing our community, but is an organizer who makes things happen and gets things done. She'll be a vocal and effective advocate for our Assembly District and will bring a progressive voice to Albany.“
“Katherine is a uniquely prepared, driven, and progressive candidate that always seems to achieve the goals put in front of her. Her results have a tendency to far exceed expectations, while also inspiring others to do better and work harder to enact community goals big and small. While these qualities are important, the one that makes her stand out is her moral compass, always steering her in the right direction away from self interest and self preservation and towards the needs of others above her own. We need more people willing to make this kind of sacrifice in politics, if we are to truly bring about transformational change in our local communities and nation as a whole.”
“I have worked closely with Katherine over the last few years in a leadership capacity. Katherine is a natural leader and I know she will represent the constituents of AD51 with upmost integrity and transparency. She is and will be a consistent champion for the progressive causes she is running on, and I know that because I’ve watched her tirelessly work to drive climate change policy forward, bringing together community members, businesses, cities and other stakeholders to find transformative solutions.”
“Katie has really taken the lead on forming and leading our very own ADC within AD51 in the Brooklyn Democratic Party. She was a leader in the efforts to get the ADC formed and made an impassioned and thoughtful presentation at the ADC, which led to her being named chair of the Committee. This is a well-deserved honor for Katie and it has been a pleasure to work with her as a Chairman of one of the sub-committees within the ADC. She is dedicated to making sure the voices of community members are heard and reflected by the decisions made within the local party structure. “
“Katherine has extremely good listening skills that she uses to relate to and be compassionate towards people of all backgrounds. She is able to take a step back to identify the larger issue at hand and then dive into the details to find a solution. I have witnessed Katherine’s leadership skills in settings where she voluntarily took charge of an informal networking group as well as in a professional capacity - managing a team. We want someone who is truly passionate about her fellow neighbors and the planet we leave behind. There is no one more dedicated to these principles then Katherine.
