Today’s news:

Brooklyn Heights: Marty Connor vs. Daniel Squadron in the 25th Senate District

The Brooklyn Paper

Can you say “Smackdown”?

Longtime state Sen. Marty Connor is facing the most serious competition in years in the form of newcomer Daniel Squadron.

It’s been a spirited campaign — with Squadron hammering Connor as a key component of Albany’s legislative sclerosis, and Connor firing back that Squadron, who only moved to the district two years ago, is an unschooled naif who doesn’t know how Albany works.

anon from brooklyn heights says:
I agree with you on both counts- Marty is a hack with very very questionable ethics.. who needs to go earn a real living. Daniel is a nice young guy who could easily be consumed by
ambition.. he is bright and has his heart in the right place. Lets be sure he does not get carried away with himself..
Out with Marty.. In with Daniel but lets watch him and keep him a public servant not an elected offical.. there is a big difference
