De Blasio, Zablocki, Socialist Debate for Dozens
Thank God for scrappy outsider publications, which give us the stories Big Media won't. The Epoch Times tells us Zablocki wants to make the comptroller second-in-line to mayoral power, which is generous of him, as the public advocate currently fills that role. Though generally sympathetic, the Epoch Times noticed that Zablocki "sometimes speaks in truisms," such as "it ain't over till it's over."
And our favorite neighborhood paper, the Rockaway Wave interviews the candidate, who denounces current PA Betsy Gotbaum in the past tense: "She ran the office like she wanted to run for mayor... She was very Manhattan and Brooklyn centered and she only went after high-profile issues." Conversely, Zablocki plans to put "at least" two representatives in each borough, and insists he doesn't want to run for Mayor. Dream big, kid! It ain't over till it's over!
You may read more of Zablocki's views, and those of other Republican challengers for local office, at a forum Our Town public-spiritedly provides for that purpose.
