  •  I live, just barely, in Avella's district (5+ / 0-)

    And on everyday, bread and butter issues he's struck me as being pretty good about local issues, e.g. parks, schools, roads, with a "regular guy" feel to him. I think I shook his hand when he canvassed a while back. But to be honest I haven't paid close attention to local politics since moving back to NYC several years ago. Also, this district has been trending heavily Asian in recent years with thousands of recent immigrants from China, South Korea and elsewhere in the far east, with a lot of Asian business development, which I'm guessing will be to Liu's advantage. Anthony Weiner's former district has a lot of overlap with this district, and his replacement was Asian, Grace Meng.
