PARK SLOPE — Donald Trump probably didn't have this in mind when he vowed to create more jobs for Americans.
City Councilman Brad Lander is hiring a new staff member whose duties will include taking direct aim at the incoming president's policies.
Lander, whose constituents voted overwhelmingly for Democrat Hillary Clinton, is looking for a communications director "to resist the threats of the Trump regime to American democratic values and vulnerable constituencies," according to a job posting for the position.
"People are genuinely worried and recognize that if we're going to be successful protecting people's rights, we're going to have to be organized and loud," Lander told the New York Daily News, which first reported the job.
The staffer will also work on traditional communications-related tasks such as arranging press conferences, getting media coverage for Lander, and handling website and social media content.
Lander, who co-founded the City Council's progressive caucus, took swift action to organize his stunned constituents after Trump's surprise victory. Thousands of people have signed up to join his #GetOrganizedBK group to fight Trump's policy goals.
Lander's office did not respond immediately to a request for comment Tuesday.
