Marty May Be Out of Office, But Don’t Tell His Jeep

BHB commenter Josh points to a story in the NY Daily News about former NY State Senator and Brooklyn Heights resident Marty Connor and other public officials who left office last year but cling to their past via  new vanity plates:

NY Daily News: Politicians Not in Office…: Longtime State Sen. Marty Connor lost his reelection bid last fall, but you wouldn’t know that from looking at his Jeep Cherokee.

Connor, an election lawyer in Brooklyn, has license plates reading “25 SD” – presumably referring to the 25th Senate District, which he represented for 30 years.

The former senator, who registered the vanity plates just days before his successor was sworn in, brushed off the suggestion that his plate referred to the seat he lost in November.

“That’s your conclusion,” he said. “I don’t have to tell you why I picked the plate.”
