Brooklyn Council District Stands Alone as Site of Two Party Primaries

NYC City Council candidates discussed the MTA and overcrowded schools–and declared themselves outsiders. From City Limits.

“I’m an outsider,” Carroll says. “I’m the one candidate that ran in an election and won.” (Tong ran unopposed). “I listen to my constituents. My independence is also key.” His history of bipartisanship exemplifies “southern Brooklyn values. We’re proud of the fact that we work with Republicans.”

“I am the only candidate outside the establishment,” El-Yateem says. “I have never been an elected official, and never been on an elected politician’s payroll.”

“I’m an outsider with the benefit of an insider’s knowledge,” says Brannan.

I’m sensing a pattern here.
