Political reporting in Queens:
It's a long way from the Queens gigs Congressmember Joseph Crowley has been playing since he was a toddler barely able to hold a guitar in Elmhurst to the world acclaimed Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington, but the lawmaker made the transition flawlessly one recent evening in pursuit of his great love of music and country.
Crowley (D- Queens/The Bronx) appeared at the performing arts center in the nation's capital, where the greatest entertainers in the nation are honored annually, with several colleagues, members of the Congressional Music Caucus and award-winning musicians to launch the caucus and the recently enacted national service initiative for artists sponsored by Crowley.
Political reporting in Brooklyn:
More than one person confided to the Politicrasher that Lander wouldn’t get their votes because, like Zuckerman and Heyer, he’s supporting DeBlasio in his run for public advocate.
And in some circles of Carroll Gardens, DeBlasio is persona non grata, because of his alleged coziness with developers.
Wherever there is a smoke-filled backroom or a smoke-free barroom, The Brooklyn Paper’s Politicrasher will be there, bringing you the inside dope on our next generation of leaders.
