Reminded that we have a great Transportation Committee (led by Tom Miskel) at Community Board 6. PARKSMART expansion to the Atlantic/Court/Smith Street commercial corridors and the Brooklyn Greenway expansion and Van Brunt sharrows all passed unanimously. On the the full Board next month where I expect all will pass easily as well.
There are multiple challengers to DA Charles Hynes in the Democratic primary this year. I had never heard of Ken Thompson before, but saw him speak last night and was impressed. Clearly a talented and passionate guy. Hynes is a pretty broadly popular incumbent, so I don't know how good his chances are this year, but he's definitely one to watch.
