Vote in today's Primary!

New York's got a primary today, and there are a lot of local candidates to choose from. For a lot of seats (I know it's true for my neighborhood), the primary is the election that matters. So get out there and vote!

I love voting.

You know who I like this year? Jimmy Van Bramer. He's in a three-way race for my city council seat, and I tell you what: he is busting his ass out there. I finally actually saw one of his competitors at my subway stop yesterday, but I've seen Jimmy a few times. He's working hard for this, and I like his determination. He's also got a bunch of really passionate volunteers. I also like that he's worked within the Queens library system, the most used library system in the country.

Go Jimmy! I'm pulling for you!

Other B&E endorsements include Tony Avella for Mayor (over Bill Thompson), Mark Green for Public Advocate (Eric "Where There's a Camera There's a" Gioia didn't quite present the vision I was hoping for), John Liu for Comptroller, and Marc Leavitt for Queens Borough President (another candidate I've actually seen pounding the pavement).

Get out there and vote, B&E readers!
