East New York
Dear City Council Candidates of the 42nd Councilmanic District,
Chris Banks is challenging incumbent Assemblywoman Inez Barron on her record of jobs and developing relationships that Banks said could help foster improvements in the district. “ENY is facing a high unemployment rate,” said Banks. “My opponent has no plan to bring jobs to our community.” When asked if he has his own jobs plan for the district, Banks responded: “I don’t have a written plan. We are working on something.”

So many fools live in the 42nd Council District. As you read the below post, you must keep in mind today’s date is April 1st. You’ll understand it better. It's very long but blame that on the subject not the writer. And please...don’t read the below alone. It pretty scary, and may damage you worse than watching Katie Couric's interview with Sarah Palin.Remind yourself after each paragraph that this is not real, much like these fools thought, so many years ago.
We're seeing the beginnings of the 2010 local election season, with perennial candidate Kevin Powell issuing a statement about the story published in the NY Daily News on 3/26/10.
A scary man appears before a gathering of people just wanting to go home. His face and booming voice fills the large room, as he spews terrifying words that fill some with fear.
