This Just In- Gyllenhaal Jilted? Squadron Pulls Ahead?

I just got this e-mail from Josh Kriegman, Campaign Advisor to Daniel Squadron. I will let it speak for itself for the moment except to point out for reference that I offered some points on what should be insisted upon in terms of effective action on Atlantic Yards (See the Brooklyn Speaks Site.) I am posting this after having just posted about the Connor vs. Squadron State senate race a short while ago. I similarly contacted the Martin Connor campaign but am still waiting for their response.


Thanks for your question.

Daniel supports a moratorium on state aide for the Atlantic Yards project for three reasons which must be addressed: First, it continues to be too big for the infrastructure surrounding it. Second, the eminent domain process neither followed an official procedure nor was transparent. Third, the project increasingly looks like a bait-and-switch on affordable housing, which is a critical priority and was the silver lining in the original plan.

Moving forward, Daniel has pledged not to accept any contributions linked to the developer of Atlantic Yards so no one needs to wonder who he's working for.
