Tuesday's main observation was as follows:As a result of Eric Adams becoming BP, the D20 seat has now been vacant for something like six months. I wanted to point out on Tuesday that, "if my employer saw no effect from a position being vacant for 6 months, they'd consider eliminating the position all together", but I decided not to.
In this case, the employer (Gov. Cuomo) seems to have little interest to bring another strong Dem to the current clusterfart that is the state senate.If I lived in SD20, I would have been made some inquiries into this. The people who live within SD20 own the fault for the poor response to their vacant seat.
I'm not sure this is fair. The decision to have a special election has a steep cost. It's cheaper for all of us if the race to fill the seat is done during the regular election cycle rather than mobilizing off cycle. Presence or absence of this Senator isn't going to change the majority which is why the Governor isn't going to lay out $s to make sure the position is filled until September.
I understand why they give lip service. I just find it depressing that 1. The aspiring politicians actually think it is easy to create

I also saw a post for an upcoming 20th Senatorial District tenants forum. (Mr. Hamilton's name is on the flyer somewhere too.) At the BK Museum stop? Good and strategic place to campaign. I wouldn't be surprised if his people were to pop up at the Prospect Park train station soon.
A candidate for the 20th District State Senate Seat accused his foe of ignoring six complaints of rape and assault at a senior home during a heated debate Thursday — yet had little information to substantiate the claims, DNAinfo New York has learned.
