Campaign kickoff stunt

WXXI reports:

“A longtime local Democratic politician is running for a New York state Assembly seat. Willie Lightfoot Sr., who is currently in his 2nd term as a City Councilman at Large will run for Assembly in the 137th district. That’s the seat currently held by Democrat Demond Meeks … Lightfoot said that it is time “for us to come together to take back our city from the dangers that have plagued it.” Lightfoot has been active in anti-violence efforts, his campaign statement talked about his push to establish the Roc Against Gun Violence Coalition …”

Not surprised by this. I suspected he was up to something when he released his so-called “Gun Violence Action Plan” a few weeks back.
