B’Paper: Levin Promises to Attend His First 33rd District Debate

herdSteve Levin, candidate for David Yassky’s 33rd District City Council seat, vows that he’ll attend next week’s debate sponsored by the New Kings Democrats.  Levin works for Democratic jefe Vito Lopez;  pundits ponder if that connection is a negative or a positive for the candidate.

Brooklyn Paper: So far in the race to succeed Councilman David Yassky and represent the 33rd District — which stretches through Greenpoint, Williamsburg, DUMBO, Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Cobble Hill and Park Slope — candidate Steve Levin has missed three such campaign forums in the Brownstone Brooklyn portion of the district, sparking concerns that the 27-year-old candidate doesn’t think he needs to campaign in those neighborhoods to win.

Levin, after all, is chief of staff to the county Democratic Party chairman, Assembly Vito Lopez, a fact that contributed to his recent endorsement by the labor union 32BJ and a campaign war chest that puts him at the top of the seven-person race.
