Dear 34th District candidates (Bushwick & Williamsburg)
Dear Maritza, Gerry, and Diana (that is, Davila, Esposito, and Reyna),
You need to have a debate. The Bushwick/ Williamsburg/ East Williamsburg community wants... needs you to have a debate. The press wants you to have a debate. Heck, Reid, Juliet and I would even settle for a candidates' forum at this point. I know a cage at the corner of Bogart and Grattan Street (above). You can rent it by the hour.
I've heard Make the Road New York wants to do something. I think El Puente wants to do something. I know BushwickBK.com wants to do something. New Kings Democrats? Can you step away from Leslie Crocker Snyder for a second and help put this together? Or maybe Arts in Bushwick can lend a hand? Any other media out there (El Diario)? Yes, I am calling out every community based organization, nonprofit, church group, arts organization, and the like in the 34th District to get involved with this. There have been seven debates for the 33rd District and zero in the 34th. It's not like the 33rd District councilmember votes any more than the 34th District councilmember (or the 37th once that petition challenge finishes). Let's get this together. We've got one month left.
