"Is it not cruel to let our city die by degrees, stripped of all her proud monuments, until there will be nothing left of all her history and beauty to inspire our children? If they are not inspired by the past of our city, where will they find the strength to fight for her future?" Jacqueline Kennedy

Josh Skaller Is The One!

Josh Skaller supporters talking to neighbors in Carroll Gardens

Josh Skaller

As many of you know, my husband Glenn and I helped organize the 39th Council District Dazzle Me Forum back in April with members of CORD and others. It was a great opportunity to get to know the candidates who are running in our district to replace outgoing Councilmember Bill DeBlasio.

After the event, we, as a group of involved Carroll Gardeners, decided that we would support one of the candidates if, and only if, we could all agree on the same person. So, after meeting with each democratic candidate individually to hear about their positions on many issues regarding our neighborhood, we all came to the same conclusion. We unanimously decided to back the one candidate who impressed us with his clear vision for our neighborhood and the changes needed in the City Council to make it accountable to the people it represents.

This candidate is Josh Skaller.

We felt that Josh best shared our concerns for our neighborhood, was incredibly forthcoming about his agenda, was willing to take on the hard issues in the City Council as well as provide this district with more communicative and transparent representation.

If you have not made up your mind, take a look at Josh Skaller's web site and watch the video below. Josh is the best man for the job.

Josh gets your vote because he's anti-development? He's already upset Speaker Quinn and has zero experience with City government.

He's a likable guy but would be a horrible councilman - vote for anyone else!
