Democratic Primaries TOMORROW

For all you registered Democrats (and Republicans!) , a reminder: Tomorrow is Primary Day. Polling places open at 6am and close at 9pm. Don’t know where to vote? The NYC Board of Elections has a handy Polling Site Locator (hint: it’s probably your nearest public school). Don’t know how to vote? The Board of Elections gives you step-by-step instructions.

The most competitive primary race for Brooklyn Heights will be the Democratic primary for the 25th NY state senate district seat between 30-year incumbent senator Martin “Marty” Connor and Daniel “Kid” Squadron.

You can read more about the race by browsing through the Brooklyn Heights Blog Election ’08 archives. And Homer Fink interviewed both candidates, listen here: Martin Connor, Daniel Squadron.

The other race to watch is the Democratic primary for the 10th Congressional District, where incumbent Ed Towns faces former Real World star Kevin Powell. We here at BHB haven’t devoted much time to this race, but you can read more about it on the Gotham Gazette website. Also, let me add that Ed Towns is insane.

    I don’t support Towns, but why is he insane based on that India article? Given India’s possession of nuclear weapons, and subsequent detonation of nuclear weapons (along with Pakistan), why is Towns’s remarks so crazy? There are plenty of other reasons to believe Towns is insane, but you lost me on the reference (almost like one of those incomprehensible New Yorker cartoons?).

    I guess you missed the part that said “In this light, the United States must declare India a terrorist state”, and yes, that is an insane notion.

    I would argue that both Towns and Powell have their moments of insanity. However, Towns has never pulled a knife on someone or biten a reporter in the leg! I just can’t hold my nose enough to vote for Powell.

    Your nearest polling place is actually probably NOT at your local school. Many BH people vote either at the Municipal Building on Joralemon Street, or the Adams St Courthouse (enter across from the Post Office).

    Qfwfq-is that really insanity given that India has nuclear weapons, an unstable national government and an unstable neighbor (Pakistan) who has long held hostility with India? It is not great policy, and likely even really bad policy, but insanity?

  • Qfwfq

    Given that India’s national government isn’t nearly as unstable as you seem to think, isn’t known to support any known anti-US terrorist organizations, and has actually helped the US in providing information on the latter, yes, it is insanity. Especially in 1998 when he made the statement, during an era when proclaiming a country a terrorist state wasn’t done as flippantly as it’s done now.
