Today is Primary Day in New York City!

Dear Commons Community,

Today is primary day in New York City and  voters will take a major step toward choosing a successor to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.  As reported in the New York Times;  

“With polls suggesting Bill de Blasio was comfortably ahead in the Democratic contest, attention was focused on whether he would surpass the 40 percent threshold needed to become the nominee, or face a runoff against the runner-up — expected to be either William C. Thompson Jr., a former comptroller, or Christine C. Quinn, the City Council speaker.

In the Republican race, Joseph J. Lhota, a former chairman of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority, and John A. Catsimatidis, a billionaire businessman, were leading the field.”

For readers interested specifically in education issues  please see my posting of September 3rd on all the candidates.

Regardless of your views, and if you are a registered Democrat or Republican, you should take the time to vote today for the candidate of your choice.
