Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Next year the city will have 13 new City Council members. Brian Lehrer and WNYC are exploring who they are, where they come from, and what they hope to accomplish.

Today we meet City Councilwoman-Elect Margaret Chin (D-1), who will represent Chinatown, SoHo, TriBeCa, and parts of the Lower East Side. This is the first time Chinatown will be represented by a Chinese-American.

More on her election here.

I got a chain email suggesting that I not spend money in any state with a republican senator until the jobs bill is addressed. Good idea.
