The Candidates in Brooklyn

One informed reader informs me that the field of competitors to fill the City Council seat being vacated by Yvette Clarke include may actually be shrinking.

Candidates still actively jockeying for position, according to the reader, include:

Jesse Hamilton, whose poster you can see here;

Ferdinand Zizi, who won support from the Haitian American Steering Committee, and is registering his political committee now;

Zenobia McNally, who ran against Yvette in 2005, but is the only person in the race who ran district-wide so far;

Dr. Mathieu Eugene, who heads a sports non-profit in the district for a number of years and has wide name recognition in the Haitian community.

But the reader says that four other candidates who were until recently planning on making a run have since dropped out because they didn’t get the support of the Haitian American Steering Committee.

Anything we’re missing?
