Carrion NYC

Azi got a hold of this two-minute video sent out by Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion to supporters.

Short of actually containing the words “Vote for Adolfo Carrion for Mayor in 2009,” it’s about as close as you can get to an election-year mayoral ad.

Inspiring music. Claims of massive increases in investment (236 percent) and decreases in crime (18 percent) since he took over from Fernando Ferrer. And clips of him saying things like this: “What I want to do is I want to give leadership to this city.”

And it closes with a logo that imposes the words “Carrion NYC” over the silhouette of a New York skyline.

It’s never too soon. I guess.
