Now’s as good a time as any to promote a small site I did for a local NYC politician who narrowly lost to Sheldon Silver last year for NYC State Assembly, which is no small feat in my neighborhood.
Actually, it’s a better time than most, because you can vote tomorrow (Tuesday, September 15th) in the Democratic Primaries. Here’s your polling place. While you’re at it, I also recommend voting for Pete Gleason for City Council, Richard Aborn for District Attorney, and Bill Thompson for Mayor (although come election day I hope you consider switching to the Reverend Billy Talen).
NYC can be a dispiriting place to follow local politics because of the corrupt elections and ridiculous term limits, but if you support these candidates everything will be better and you will get a pony1.
Update 9/17: Gleason and Aborn lost, but Newell won! With 66% of the vote, winning 29 out of 30 election districts. We’re going to put up some kind of community resource website soon.
