Marty snubs DDDb at CBID

MartyCBIDAd.jpg Was it a printer error or sour grapes when Brooklyn Borough President Marty Markowitz's ad in the program for last night's Central Brooklyn Independent Democrats Annual Dinner congratulated all award recipients except for Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn (DDDb)?

Markowitz was spotted outside the Montauk Club, but in a move uncharacteristic for Mr. "Hello Brooklyn," he never joined the cadre of local pols who made an appearance or attended the dinner.

The awardees, Concerned Citizens of Greenwood Heights, South Park Slope Community Group, Park Slope Neighbors and DDDb, were all commended for their local battles to promote smart development in Brooklyn and to preserve the integrity of our neighborhoods.

Markowitz is fond of reminding Brooklynites that people of goodwill can disagree, so we'll chalk this one up to a simple oversight.
