Delia Hunley-Adossa's stealth candidacy for the 35th Council District; will there be a September push?
Atlantic Yards Report
Yesterday, The NY Times stopped short of posting a missing poster on The Local blog for Atlantic Yards supporter Delia Hunley-Adossa, who surely has had numerous opportunities to return the paper's call. [NoLandGrab's take: The Times might have better luck going through the Forest City Ratner switchboard.]
Norman Oder offers color commentary:
So, what to make of the stealth campaign of Delia Hunley-Adossa, known for her work as president of 88th Precinct Community Council and her questionable ties to the Atlantic Yards project? Perhaps because of the latter, she's avoiding the press and public debates. But is that the way to win a Council seat held by incumbent Letitia James, who won her last primary with 84% of the vote?
I don't think so. I doubt even the AY-loving Daily News could legitimately endorse her after her unwillingness to subject herself to public scrutiny.
Has Hunley-Adossa given up, concluding that the political fight is not for her? Maybe, but I doubt it. Perhaps she'll pour her remaining resources into a final push during the week before the election--remember (pro-AY candidate) Tracy Boyland's stealth campaign in 2006 for (anti-AY) Velmanette Montgomery's state Senate seat.
