Hillary Clinton’s campaign office might end up being right in our backyard.
Clinton signed a lease on two floors of office space at 1 Pierrepont Plaza in Brooklyn Heights, according to a CNN report on Friday morning. This comes after Clinton’s reported attempt to lease space at MetroTech did not ultimately work 0ut.
Clinton has not yet officially launched a campaign for the presidency in 2016 as of yet, but if and when she does, Brooklyn Heights will likely be the headquarters for the presumptive democratic frontrunner.
“Brooklyn could not be more prepared and excited to host Hillary Clinton as she begins her journey as the consensus front-runner for the Democratic nomination for President,” said Carlo A. Scissura, President & CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce. “As one of the most diverse and tolerant places on the planet — and with cool points no other city can match — the road to the White House is clearly paved through our borough. Brooklyn is the capital of tomorrow, and there’s no better place for tomorrow’s aspiring President to run a campaign.”
