New Blog: Atlantic Yards Voter Guide


There's a new blog around called Atlantic Yards Voter Guide (which we found thanks to onNYTurf) aimed at tracking candidates in the November election and their position on the Atlantic Yards Project. Given that keeping track of who has taken what position is difficult, it's a welcome source of information. (It's been done before, notably by No Land Grab, but it's always worth repeating. We're reproducing their information here:
18th Senate District:
Velmanette Montgomery opposes the project.
Tracy Boyland supports the project, and Forest City Ratner Forest City Enterprises supports her.

57th Assembly District:
Bill Batson opposes the project.
Hakeem Jeffries supports the project.
Freddie Hamilton supports the project and signed the "Community Benefits Agreement."

11th Congressional District:
Chris Owens opposes the project.
David Yassky supports the project.
Carl Andrews supports the project.
Yvette Clarke supports the project.

10th Congressional District:
Charles Barron opposes the project.
Ed Towns supports the project.
Roger Green supports the project and was involved in forming the group B.U.I.L.D.

Tom Suozzi opposes the project.
Eliot Spitzer supports the project.

Attorney General:
Sean Patrick Maloney opposes the project.
Andrew Cuomo supports the project.
Mark Green supports the project.
Charlie King supports the project.
Looks like AYVG will be reporting relevant Atlantic Yards political stories, which is a good and helpful thing.
