Just a reminder to all my FIPNA friends that there is a Democratic primary being held on Tuesday, September 15th. For our neighborhood, the ballot will include a primary for our City Council representative. There are two candidates, and every registered Democrat should check them out, and make a choice.
There’s a lot of info on the web, if you google their names. I’ll try to post some, starting here with their own websites. The candidates are:
Oliver Koppell, the councilman since 2002. He doesn’t seem to have a campaign website, but his official website is
Anthony Perez Cassino, who’s been on Community Board 8 for some time.
His campaign website is http://www.cassinoforcouncil.com/
On the ballot that same day will be a primary for Mayor, Public Advocate and Controller. Don’t forget to exercise your vote!
I invite everyone to (politely, please) advocate for the candidates of your choice. I’ll try to do another post shortly with endorsements.
