Election preview: why the race in the 18th Senatorial District is no inspiring example of democratic debate

Atlantic Yards Report

Norman Oder has an in-depth rundown on the race for the 18th State Senate district, in which anti-Atlantic Yards stalwart Velmanette Montgomery faces a challenge from Charter School advocate Mark Pollard, who promises he'll keep a close eye on Bruce C. Ratner. Uh huh.

I can't say the 18th Senatorial District race between 26-year incumbent Velmanette Montgomery and challenger Mark Pollard has been a particularly inspiring example of democracy.

While the candidates have been out campaigning, the main contact many of us have with this race is by receiving propaganda in the mail.
