BHB Reader Endorsement Poll: NYC Council District 33

Since we started Brooklyn Heights Blog, our policy has been to not endorse candidates. We, of course, reserve the right to be bloggers – insightful and sometimes snarky – but not to unilaterally decide which candidates deserve the backing of the BHB community. That’s up to you!

While some have decided to NOT endorse anyone in this race (we’re looking at you New Kings Democrats!), BHB readers will be backing either Levin or Pierson when all is said and done.

Poll closes on 8/31/13 at 11:59pm.

Vote after the jump.
