Let the games begin! As City Councilman David Yassky enters the race for City Comptroller, three folks have thrown their hat into the ring to represent the 33rd District.
The Best We Can Do?!
Evan Thies – 28 years old, grew up in New Hampshire. Worked for Yassky. Lives in Willamsburg.
Fink thinks: Shouldn't he be running a web 2.0 start up… err sumthin'? Just sayin' he's got that look about him. Won't make up my mind on him until we know how many pairs of khaki pants he owns.
Stephen Levin – 27 years old, grew up in New Jersey. Works for Assemblyman Vito Lopez. Lives in Greenpoint.
Fink thinks: He ran an anti-predatory lending campaign. He might just have a heart of gold. Won't make up my mind until he plays Match Game at Magnetic Field. Yes, that's an invitation Stevie. For that matter, all of you are invited.
Jo Anne Simon – 55 years old, grew up in Yonkers. Attorney focusing on the rights of the disabled. Lives in Boerum Hill.
Fink thinks: Jeez, she's qualified for this job but we worry about her taking the pay cut. If we had to endorse (hey we don't endorse we just pontificate, ok?) she would have the inside track.
