  1. I won't bother sending it in, but I'd ask Cortez why he's bothering running. Has zero web presence that I can find.

    Even in 2011 when 11? candidates ran I think they all at least had some web presence.

  2. Not that I have anything to do with Cortez, but he happened to be my Uber driver this morning. I got his website here:

    1. Thank you. That's more than I knew about him. Election is five weeks away. He may want to get working on his web presence.

  3. Also, I'm a web developer, if any of the candidates are looking at these comments and are in need of a local web person, who lives in the 46th ward! Would be glad to help (for a reasonable fee).
