Bruce Ratner among the co-chairs of planned de Blasio fundraiser
Atlantic Yards Report
Capital Tonight's Liz Benjamin reports that Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, widely seen as a mayoral candidate in 2013, is holding a 50th birthday fundraiser on June 23.
Check out the list of co-chairs (below) and see the name Bruce Ratner.
That suggests that de Blasio's essential backing of Atlantic Yards--he belatedly criticized the process, not the project--hasn't deterred Ratner. (Here's my analysis of de Blasio's due diligence.)
Is Ratner backing just one horse in 2013? Too soon to tell.
