If at First You Don't Succeed . . .

Yesterday, MidHudson News shared the news that Ọṣun Zotique, who last week, running as a write-in candidate, failed to win a seat on the Hudson City School District Board of Education, is now seeking to represent the 19th District in Congress: "Transgender non-binary Democrat announces run for Congress."

A press release received by Gossips states: "Zotique aims to advance efforts regionally and nationally towards shattering glass ceilings and barriers to entry in political representation, particularly for young and queer leaders. . . . In seeking higher office, Zotique wishes to elevate the visibility of the city of Hudson, in addition to teaching our local queer youth that their leadership and their voices are essential."
