Vote Today In NYC’s Public Advocate Run-off

your_vote_counts_button_3As the government shuts down, a critical election in NYC is still underway and New Yorkers are urged to head to their poll sites to cast a ballot.

Unlike the rest of the government, the election for NYC Public Advocate is not affected. Polls will be open today from 6 AM – 9 PM as New Yorkers make their way to cast ballots for the next public advocate, aka the citywide ombudsman to New York City government.

Two Democrats, Daniel Squadron and Letitia James will go head-to-head in a run-off election.

Turnout is expected to be pathetically low, so we here at Queens-Politics are urging everyone to head to their poll sites to cast a ballot in this critical election.

Insiders appear to be divided rather evenly between Squadron and James, so do your research and make a decision. Candidates home pages can be found in the hyperlinks above.

No excuses, go and vote.

In The Halls Of Justice, The Only Justice Is In The Halls

Loyalty?

How does the Democratic party perpetuate its own power? Through manipulating the court system, according to the NY Times.

The Queens county surrogate court is a bastion of power hungry party loyalists. They are the batteries that makes the machine function.

Operatives and future candidates stay in the loop by towing the party line.

Luckily,  a few brave souls that are not afraid to speak out against a good ol’ boy system where loyalty is measured by submission.

Read the scathing NY Times article for the full scoop.
