Developer runs for State Senate

After watching support for his second bid to unseat Sen. Marty Connor shift in favor of a new Democratic insurgent, Dan Squadron, developer Ken Diamondstone has announced he intends to take another shot next year at the 33rd Council District seat he unsuccessfully sought the last time it was open in 2001.

Isn't it great that the developers are now climbing directly onto the gravy train instead of having some hack offer the illusion that they care about the little guy? Oh wait, he's giving it a good try on his website:

Ken has a long record of standing up to the developers and bureaucrats who sacrifice our quality of life for their profit margins, and will continue to do so as State Senator. In a time when career politicians, lobbyists, and special interests have taken over Albany, Ken will put an end to the backroom deals and fight for the progressive reform our community needs.

HA HA HA HA - Hey there's a bridge in Brooklyn he'll sell ya, too...

Just to stay in practice, Squadron will deposit cash into his bank account on a somewhat regular interval.

I understand there is a big push to put architects on the community boards, too.
