New York City Creates Publicity Videos For Democratic National Convention Bid

January 13, 2015  |  

The City of New York is busy promoting itself as a candidate host city for the 2016 Democratic National Convention (DNC). The goal of the DNC is to nominate and confirm who will be the Democratic presidential and vice presidential candidates for the 2016 November elections. Aiming for a win for Brooklyn, New York City’s government has released a series of videos of native New Yorkers and celebrities who grew up within in the five boroughs.

The Daily News reports, die-hard New Yorker Rosie Perez said in her video, “If the DNC comes to Brooklyn, you are going to understand why we are so proud and loud about it. Can we tawk?” The lead of the Motown Broadway show, Josh Tower who acts as Berry Gordy hailed New Yorkers. “We have the biggest stars, the brightest lights, and nowhere else in the world can you have this much fun and see this great of a show,” he says.

The DNC committee will choose between Philadelphia, New York and Columbus, OH. New York Mayor de Blasio’s spokeswoman Marti Adams says New York out-fundraised the competing cities. Despite the Big Apple financial advantage, sources exclusively told the Daily News that donors to the DNC are not sure if the convention should be held in Brooklyn due to the shooting that left two police officers dead in December.

Do you think New York City should host the DNC?
