READ indeed and Councilmen Wannabee's Debate about Speed...

Third Street between Bond Street and Third Avenue. "READ" has impeccable brush skills....is this the same crew who did this?

Anyway, back to local politics (blah!) there is an informative article in today's Gotham Gazette about how the Gowanus is a hot topic in the elections for a wannabe Councilman to replace Bill DeBlasio. READ it here. F.I.B is undecided about who to vote for, I am skeptical of all but with a gun to my head I would go for Josh Skaller or Gary Reilly. To add more fuel to the fire of trying to make a decision there will be a debate amongst all the 39th district canditates tomorrow night in Park Slope where they will be discussing their views on transportation.

Here is the info from the folks at the Street Activist Network:

Join Transportation Alternatives as the candidates for City Council District 39 debate the bike network, congestion pricing, pedestrian safety, the MTA and livable streets issues of all stripes. The debate will be moderated by T.A. Executive Director Paul Steely White. Show the candidates how important these issues are to you by helping to pack the room!

When: Tuesday, August 18, 7-8:30pm
Where: PS 321, 180 7th Avenue (between 1st and 2nd Street)
Who: City Council candidates for District 39 whom are: John Heyer, Brad Lander, Joe Nardiello, David Pechefsky, Gary Reilly, Josh Skaller and Bob Zuckerman

Stay after the debate to meet the candidates in person and let them hear from you!

I'm sorry Hamerman and Dibrienza dropped out of the race. Those two guys have been around a long time and know how the City runs. The rest are all lightweights. We're gonna get screwed these next 4 years, that's for sure.
