Here at CHB, we usually leave the political reporting to other sites. However, we received a compelling email in the inbox that seemed worthy of discussion:
I’m a Clinton Hill resident and I’m somewhat interested/involved in local politics. Today, I was enjoying some coffee along Fulton Street, and I didn’t believe what I saw. Around 3:00pm, I saw around 10-12 young women carrying Delia Hunnly signs in front of Tish James’ campaign office. None of these girls could have been over 16 years of age, and they were a loud, rude, gyrating crew. I didn’t see from which direction they arrived, but they were walking back and forth maybe 2 blocks of Fulton (that included Tish’s campaign office), so I couldn’t imagine they were there for any other reason but to heckle Tish’s campaign people.
It seems really disrespectful, unprofessional, and a bit sad that Delia has to resort to sending children to taunt her opponent [and they did taunt, I overheard them saying, “You should work for Dee! She pays gooood!” to the office, who as far as I could tell ignored the entire event]. Furthermore, this is really disrespectful to the neighbors and businesses to send these loud children into our community for this foolishness. Delia should be thoroughly embarrassed, because I am embarrassed for her. I am not a hard “Tish supporter”, but this has made the choice for me. I have attached photos I took on my cell phone as proof, and I am sending this email to all the media I could find online or had already, because this kind of behavior needs to be exposed.
