This week, I complied a list of resolutions that Williamsburg leaders made for 2010. Some highlights...
*Peter Gillespie, NAG wants to learn how to make eggplant parmiagana.
*Susan Albrecht, Catholic Charities, wants to learn Ultimate Frisbee and play on facebook more.
*David Maundrell, Apartments and Lofts, wants to start an arts festival.
*UJCare's Gary Schlesinger narrowly edging Rob Solano for using the word "community" the most times in their resolutions.
By far the best resolution came from Borough President Marty Markowitz who told me at Inauguration day that after creating more jobs for Brooklyn he wanted to lose ten pounds. I suggested to him that he should by Borough President Scott Stringer's relatively new cookbook, which advocated eating lots of vegetables after 1o PM if you have a late dinner. To this, Marty replied he would rather eat half of what he likes than a full serving of something he doesn't like. Long live Marty! We'll see you at Peter Luger's.
