Question time: New format helps reveal candidates’ traits — and car ownership!

The Brooklyn Paper
by Thomas Tracy and Gersh Kuntzman

Atlantic Yards worked its way into a forum this week featuring candidates running for the City Council seat in the 33rd district.

Ken Diamondstone and Evan Thies immediately turned their attention to front-runner Jo Anne Simon, with Diamondstone taking her to task for her approach to the much-reviled Atlantic Yards project. Simon co-founded Brooklyn Speaks, a group that wants to change Bruce Ratner’s project, rather than backing Develop Don’t Destroy Brooklyn, which wants to take the project out of Ratner’s hands entirely.

Simon responded that there are many approaches to fixing Atlantic Yards.
