I know most folks here are not NY'ers. But I am just so excited, I need to scream this from the rooftops.
Bill de Blasio has taken the lead in the race for mayor of NYC!!!!
I've supported de Blasio since Quinn was the only game in town. Before Weiner decided that having nominally liberal policy stances would make the rest of us forget that he is a psycho. (I could tell you stories that have nothing to do with sexting teenage girls). And after two decades of Giuliani / Bloomberg, it appears that NYC is about to maybe, maybe, maybe have a decent mayor.
Here is an article on his new lead in the polls. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2013/08/16/bill-de-blasio-is-the-man-for-new-york-city.html
And here is his new campaign ad.
So for those of you who have never heard of the guy, when he becomes mayor of NYC, you can remember that you first heard of him here!
