Juan Ardila looks to be the next NYC Assemblyman for LIC. He won the Democratic Primary held yesterday with fewer than 4,000 votes in a district with ~125,000 residents. Labeled a progressive and backed by Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez, my guess is those votes at least had some strong convictions behind them, as for the other 121,000 residents…
Meanwhile, in a case of the system working effectively, local school superintendent Philip Composto has kept his job. This came after his dismissal -> uproar -> pols getting involved -> mayoral administration admitting they erred1 -> cooling off period/reassessment -> reinstatement. Good job citizens!
