Rodneyse Bichotte is the first Haitian-American woman elected in New York City, representing Brooklyn as the Assemblymember and State Committee Woman / District Leader for New York State’s 42nd Assembly District. She represents Flatbush, East Flatbush, Midwood and Ditmas Park in Brooklyn.

We discuss how a life-changing accident at the age of ten led Rodneyse to a career in public service, key initiatives she is working to pass to better the lives of the most vulnerable in New York City, and her economic predictions for the future of the Big Apple.

Born and raised in Brooklyn, Rodneyse is the first Engineer elected to the New York State Legislature; and the first woman to chair the Brooklyn Democratic County Committee.
