HDC Publishes Online Voter's Guide for City Council Race
Thanks everyone who came out last Thursday for the candidate forum. We thought it was a big success, with more than 100 attendees and 9 out of 11 candidates showing up (and staying the whole time!). For pictures, Xris at the Flatbush Gardner was in the audience and kindly posted photos, http://flatbushgardener.blogspot.com/2007/02/40th-district-forum-on-preservation.html for which we’re very grateful since ours didn’t come out nearly as well.
Prior to the forum, we had approached all of the candidates with a questionaire from the Coalition of Concerned Preservation Voters in the 40th District about preservation and development concerns (which was also made available to them at the forum). At press time, 8 out of 11 candidates responded and their answers are posted at http://www.hdc.org/District_40.htm. (We’re continuing to follow up with the 2 candidates from the 51st District in Staten Island on their questionaire).
Remember, the special election is February 20, and it’s winner-take-all (no run-off), so if you’re in the district, vote! Learn more about this race and the race for the 51st at http://www.gothamgazette.com/article/issueoftheweek/20070212/200/2100
