WFP members are gravitating towards Ken's message of change the same way the New York Times did (Dorothy Siegel, George Albro, I shouldn't list too many names), and doing what they do best -- mobilizing for election day.
I think I smell an upset.
One of the real issues in the campaign (on the Brooklyn side of the district) is the proposed construction of luxury housing in Brooklyn Bridge Park (BBP). Connor's for it. Diamondstone's against -- and so is the community. It's not Atlantic Yards. Call this story "on the waterfront." But this primary election is shaping up as a referendum on an issue. And isn't that what they're supposed to be about.
So, if you're in the neighborhood, check out this BBP-related campaign event:
