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:
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.”
