Moses Gates, who is NOT real reform brooklyn, wanted me to remind everyone about the pool:
33rd city council district betting pool is on! $10 buy-in. There's no prize for second place in the election, and there's no prize for second place in the pool. Winner take all.
How To Play: PayPal 10 dollars to MosesGates@gmail.com with the note "33rd candidate pool" or give me 10 bucks if I run into you. Then send your picks back to this e-mail address. Both picks and money must be received by SEPTEMBER 4th (i.e., before the next campaign finance filing deadline).If you're not the gambling type and just want to play for bragging rights, that's fine also. Send in your picks, but only people who send in the 10 bucks by Sept. 4th can win the money.
How to Pick: write down the seven candidates in the order you think they'll finish. Then write down the winner's margin of victory over the second place finisher in TOTAL VOTES (not percentage). For instance, if you happen to choose alphabetically, it would look like this:1. Abraham - wins by 613 votes over Baer.2. Baer3. Biviano4. Levin5. Livingstone6. Simon7. Thies
