Mike Bloomberg and Eliot Spitzer sometimes get accused of being Manhattan-centric, but they’ve got nothing on City Councilwoman Gale Brewer of the West Side.
Here’s what she told West Side Spirit [get online already!] this week about the possibility of holding citywide office:
WSS: I heard that you were looking at the public advocate’s race.
GB: That’s what everybody tells me that I’m thinking. But who wants to go to all those other boroughs and talk to all those people? And also, I was there with Mark [Green] for four years and it was a horrible place. You have to every single day dram up something to advocate…But I like legislation, like budget I think I know it pretty well and I love figuring out and I can explain it to people.
