Bill de Blasio Endorses Batson for Assembly Seat

City Council Member and Park Slope resident Bill de Blasio has endorsed Bill Batson for the 57th Assembly District. Batson is a grassroots candidate for the Assembly seat for the assembly seat, which is up for grabs this November. (The district includes the Atlantic Yards site.) Batson is an outspoken opponent of the Atlantic Yards project and has fought a plan to use of eminent domain to turn an Underground Railroad site in downtown Brooklyn into a parking garage. Interstingly, de Blasio and Batson disagree on Atlantic Yards, with deBlasio supporting the project.
