No doubt this will not involve much in terms of what the candidates will do, or can do. Blumenfield I am sure will be attacked for running for two seats, because that's somehow wrong, and that's somehow a reason to vote for another candidate. Then again, a handful are only running for CD3 to take a shot at the soon to be vacated assembly seat held by Blumenfield. Still, will be interesting to see all of the candidates in one setting. Except for Blumenfield, none of the candidates offer a compelling reason to vote for them, and none has the experience to be a productive city council member.
