JOIN OUR FIGHT FOR A BETTER COMMUNITY
Our district deserves a visionary - a leader with bold ideas that redefines our potential. We can be idealists and realistist at the same time if we have a plan and a commitment to the work. Hercules has both - and he's ready to serve.
HERCULES E. REID
Hercules Emile Reid is an advocate, activist, and community organizer in East Flatbush. His advocacy work began as a student at the Historically Black Delaware State University, in 2010. Since then, through various roles, he has fought and won battles on behalf of students, workers, and families for access to opportunity and lives of dignity.
Facing the financial hardship of private education, Reid left Del State to come home to Brooklyn, transferring to CUNY’s own City Tech. Within his college, Reid was twice elected President of the student government. Within the broader CUNY system, he served in the University Student Senate, as Vice-Chair for Legislative Affairs. In these roles he led successful efforts on behalf of students for a tuition freeze and on behalf of faculty and staff for fair contracts. In a University system hosting half a million New Yorkers, Reid got results.
Reid’s years at the office of the Brooklyn Borough President followed the same pattern: hard work with a personal touch to deliver resources to his community.
Hercules Reid is a pragmatic visionary: he promises bold new ideas for a brighter future — and a common-sense path to get there.

Education happens within the context of a larger community. Our approach extends beyond the school to help ensure students have the necessary support to do their best learning throughout their community.
A clean community is a healthy, safe community. Each opportunity to act in service of our neighbors is a privilege, and we hope to see lots of you out there manifesting the spaces we deserve.
The welfare of our people is a shared responsibility between the community and government. Protesting in various ways are means of holding our government accountable. Come out to events to ensure that shared causes get the attention and action they deserve.
