Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez Opens Bronx Campaign Office

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez kicking off her re-election bid, opened her Bronx campaign office on Saturday February 15th. The address is 1371 Herschell Street just off Westchester Avenue. This location seems to be the middle of the Bronx part of the 14th Congressional District. To the East is Throggs Neck, Pelham, and Country Club. To the West is Parkchester and Castle Hill. To the North is Morris Park, Van Nest, and Pelham Parkway.

  The campaign office is divided into different sections where different activities can take place. After she wins re-election Congresswoman Ocassio-Cortez intends to turn the campaign office into a community space for meetings and educating people how to help themselves, and others. The lease is for five years so it looks like Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez intends to stick around. One thing however, in 2021 there will be redistricting, and with the possible loss of two congressional seats for New York no one can predict what Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez's district will look like for her race in 2022.
