Real NYC politicos never sleep.
Within minutes there is was; Ceceilia live on Twitter fielding questions from NY’s most seasoned journos and media watchers. Luckily I was wide awake and fired off a question, “Cecilia, do you support the MLS stadium proposal for FMCP?” A few minutes passed and she got back to me, “It is hard to say,” she wrote. “I think we know too little about low income people & they need their green space. Not the stadium. So NO.”
I pondered her response for a moment. She was apparently serious.
Curious, I asked how might she go about learning more about the “low income people” that she said needed the greenspace.
“Recruit them, interview them. Find them at places like four seasons jamaican restaurant at president st & Nostrand ave bkln.”
“…and similar type restaurants in queens and Bronx etc.”
And there you have it folks, another well-qualified candidate running to become our next Mayor.
