It's an Election Year
That's right. While the rest of the country gets to relax and enjoy being in an off year in terms of electoral madness, we in New York have a mayoral election to look forward to. Now, this would be a big deal no matter what, but THIS election will be noteworthy because—unless Bloomberg pulls off some really fancy legislative footwork—we will be getting a new mayor for the first time in 12 years! That's a really long time. Who will it be? Christine Quinn? Joe Lhota? Nobody knows. But it will probably, hopefully, get kind of interesting as the year progresses. Also, long-time and much maligned Brooklyn DA Charles "Joe" Hynes is being challenged by Abe George this year. As we get closer to Election Day, prepare for the mudslinging to commence.
