September 15th is primary election day, so be sure to set some time aside and go to your local polling place. There are a number of interesting competitions this year including Mayor, Comptroller, Public Advocate, and numerous intense City Council battles.
We (the creators of the Word On Columbia St.) have decided to only make an endorsement in one of these races - the 39th City Council district, which includes the Columbia Waterfront and a number of other neighborhoods (see full map here)
Our endorsement in this race is for Brad Lander. Read our full endorsement here or check out his website here.
He is also endorsed by the NY Times, the Daily News, Congressmembers Nydia Velazquez and Jerry Nadler, State Senator Daniel Squadron, Council Member Sara Gonzales, the New York League of Conservation Voters, Citizens Union, the United Federation of Teachers, the Freelancers Union, the Metropolitan Council on Housing, Tenants PAC, and many many more.
