A reader in Brooklyn sent along this photo of campaign material for perennial candidate Noach Dear, now running for civil court judge. A local newspaper in Brooklyn, Courier Life, described the development this way:
He’s spent some time appearing before a judge. Now he wants to become one.
Dear, who insiders describe as a “political addict,” has run for political office almost every election since he was term-limited out of the City Council in 2001.
