John Quaglione just did the quirkiest “roll-out” of a campaign I’ve ever seen --- just a naked Facebook post and an E-mail --- no run-up, no event, no fanfare --- AND --- minimal impact
Here’s the long and the short of it from JQ:
“I am excited to announce that I am entering the 2017 race for New York City Council's 43rd District, which encompasses Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights, Bath Beach and Bensonhurst. I wanted you to be among the first to know that I have begun the process of filing the necessary paperwork and will officially launch my campaign soon.
Over the last couple of months, many people have encouraged me to enter this year's race. I am grateful for this indication of early support which was so important to the campaign when I ran four years ago. Many of you may remember what I said then, and I will say it again now, because I still believe that we can do better.
I will soon begin to outline my vision to improve and make our community stronger for all of us. But I can not do this alone and that is why I hope you will join my team. I know this is going to be a great campaign!”
