Breeana Mulligan

Executive Vice President

Bree Mulligan Edited.jpg

Breeana Mulligan, most commonly known as Bree, was proudly selected as Executive Vice President of QCYD and is, of course, a proud Queens native. Bree was previously QCYD’s Communications Director. She currently serves as First Deputy Press Secretary for Speaker Corey Johnson and the New York City Council. With her knowledge and expertise, Bree hopes to expand QCYD’s message and activities through various forms of media while collaborating with the President in ensuring the organization works in tandem with Democratic elected officials and the party as a whole to achieve progressive ideals. She can be seen all over the city supporting causes she believes in, whether it is encouraging women to run for office or advocating for individuals with disabilities.

Bree’s passion for politics began at the age of 15 when she read a New York Times profile about a longshot presidential campaign of a charming hopeful named Barack Obama. It was also during her high school years when she knew she would work in the field of communications. Her passion in media and politics has been effervescent ever since - from contributing articles to numerous publications to get out the vote efforts on countless campaigns on the federal, state and local levels. Bree graduated magna cum laude from St. John’s University with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism.

When she isn’t seen at City Hall or out on the field, Bree can be found fulfilling her love for music at a concert, music festival or record store so be sure you ask her for recommendations or watching the same episodes of “Seinfeld,” “How I Met Your Mother,” and “The Office” over and over. You can follow her on Twitter: @BreeanaMulligan


Antonio Alfonso

Vice President of Political Affairs

Antonio Alfonso, Jr., affectionately known as Tony, was re-elected to be the Vice President of Political Affairs this past February. As Vice President of Political Affairs, he helped mobilize members to assist local Democratic candidates in their bids for office. Antonio currently works as an independent consultant for various progressive campaigns. He relies on his previous experiences as a student leader at CUNY and business analyst at companies both large and small to help candidates win elected office. He holds a dual degree in Economics and Political Science from Baruch College. 

On the rare occasions he's doing something other than politicking, you can find Antonio playing soccer, taking a photo or two of his surroundings, or enjoying friends' company at a local watering hole.
