Coney Island as Campaign Platform
Last week, someone re-distributed an unsigned "Community Report Card" that gives Reccia F's on "stopping over-development," "creating affordable housing," for "wanting to convert Asser Levy Park into an amphitheater," "neighborhood cleanliness" and "creating jobs in Coney Island." […]The issues addressed by the card seem to focus on Coney Island, which falls in Recchia's district, and may have been connected to his defense of Thor Equities' proposed $1.5-billion, Las Vegas-style theme park.
Kruger- who has been a state senator for 13 years now, and is rumored to be gunning for the job of Borough President in 2009 (a job Recchia is also rumored to be interested in) - has been keeping his good name in the newspaper the old fashioned way: giving out free turkeys.
