Races to Watch

City Limits has a nice round-up of some of the City Council races worth watching, with this rather harsh introduction to one Brooklyn contest:

“Outgoing incumbent Tracy Boyland, publicly derided for poor council attendance and lackluster performance, has represented the district since 1997; her father and brother have represented nearby Bedford-Stuyvesant in the state assembly since 1982. Determined to keep the family business alive, William Boyland, Sr.–Tracy’s father, 64–emerged from retirement to take on a field of 14 candidates.”

UPDATE: Gotham Gazette has also been reporting out several contested Council races.
