Local political junkies finally have a place to call their own on the Web.

On Friday, the Community Newspaper Group — of which this newspaper is a part — will launch, the Internet’s only Web site devoted solely to politics, elections, issues and races in Brooklyn, The Bronx and Queens.

Of course, includes our 29-newspaper chain’s coverage of this year’s citywide races — for public advocate, comptroller and mayor. But our exclusive articles, features, profiles and unmatched analysis of the local races in Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens neighborhoods is what will give local political junkies their daily fix.

For our readers, that means intense coverage of all the races — including our wall-to-wall coverage of the two open City Council seats in Brownstone Brooklyn.

In addition, a feature called BoroWire aggregates political coverage of Brooklyn, Queens and The Bronx from other news outlets in town, making the only Web site you need for all the political news you want.

It all starts Friday. Only at

Peter Johnson from park slope says:
...New news in Brooklyn politics, Jerry O’Brian is still trying to get Community leader, a man who is speaking on behalf of the people Candidate for the City Council District 39 George Smith off the board “this man just won’t give up, he won’t let the people down, I see him keep on trying”, It was old hand Jerry O’Brian vs. George Smith in Court today. Let’s guess who won, George Smith won. George Smith. I don’t know why people keep on trying to get him off; I feel park slope needs Change, someone who will speak for the people. Why not have a person who has organized 100’s of City events and dozens of charity events for a ton of different causes around NY area represent the great people of his district. Why not have a person who was born and raised in the district represent it.
