City Council Member and City Comptroller candidate David Yassky’s campaign office this afternoon issued a press release saying that Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will join Yassky and his supporters tomorrow at 1:45 P.M. on the steps of City Hall for a “major campaign announcement”. Undoubtedly this means Markowitz is giving his support to Yassky, “the only Brooklynite in the race”.
The full text of the press release follows the jump.
BROOKLYN BOROUGH PRESIDENT MARTY MARKOWITZ TO JOIN DAVID YASSKY FOR MAJOR CAMPAIGN ANNOUNCEMENT
Tomorrow on the steps of City Hall, Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz will join Council Member David Yassky, Democratic candidate for New York City Comptroller, to make a major campaign announcement. Yassky is the only Brooklynite in the race for New York City Comptroller. They will be joined by Yassky supporters from across the borough.
On the City Council, David has fought for hard working New Yorkers by standing up to special interests and demanding accountability and responsibility. He sued Exxon-Mobil to clean up the Greenpoint oil spill, closed tax loopholes to ensure that luxury developers create middle class housing, and has already put the City budget online in a fully transparent, easy-to-use form (www.ItsYourMoneyNYC.com). He has helped root out wasteful spending by exposing tens of millions of dollars of abuse at the Department of Housing Preservation and Development, and by passing the False Claims Act to reward whistleblowers who report fraud in City government.
