The other candidates running aren't bad apples, but what's badly needed in the city council race for Williamsburg is good old fashioned change — and that's why the Williamsburg Nerd is endorsing Gerry Esposito for the seat.
Reading up on Esposito I really like his biography, he's been active in the neighborhood since 1977. But what makes him shine to me is that aside from his community service he isn't part of any machine, i.e. he really represents the grass roots.
Frankly what won me over was his Facebook profile — he was a member of Brooklyn for Barack so you know he's the real deal, but better yet he's a supporter of the Williamsburg Gallery Association, the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition (the BARC shelter) and an alumni of the Peace Corps. So on September 15th please vote in Democratic primary for Gerry Esposito.
