Evan Thies shoots for 2

Don't look know but Evan Thies is picking up steam with 2 big local endorsements in The Brooklyn Downtown Star and The Brooklyn Paper.

Here's the two key paragraphs from The Paper:

Thies would be a break from insider politics and a step towards the kind of progressive leadership that the Council desperately needs. He showed that in his committed, hands-on work as a member of his local community board, a body that too many members treat as nothing but a place to whine about something every month.

Thies, while working for Yassky, was the architect of a 2005 rezoning that mandated an affordable housing component to the city’s massive transformation of the Williamsburg-Greenpoint waterfront from manufacturing towards luxury housing. That agreement remains a model for large rezonings.

For the next week in Thies-land, it's No Sleep Till... City Hall?
