  •  From one Brooklynite to another... (none)
    I'd suggest voting for Gloria Mattera for Brooklyn borough president. Probably not likely to win (though I hate having that attitude about candidates I support) but she's got some good ideas and is definitely against the Ratner deal.
    •  I intend to do so. (none)
      I've met her and was pleased. I might even give some time to working for her, especially if she seems like she has any kind of a shot at winning (I, too, have a long and glorious history of supporting worthy losers).

      I knew Marty in college (35 years ago), and when he first ran I thought he'd be ideal for the job; not the brightest bulb on the porch, but he was born to boost Brooklyn. Unfortunately, his idea of boosting isn't quite what I had in mind. I fear the Ratner project will destroy and denature downtown Brooklyn for the rest of my life, and it seems unstoppable at this point.

      As long as I count the votes, what are you going to do about it? - William Marcy Tweed
