In case you're wondering who Lew Fidler is endorsing, he emailed reporters to say:
Not that even my already inflated ego believes that you need to write about this and that it is newsworthy, but i wanted to let you all know that today I am endorsing the following candidates in this years election and will be voting for them tonight at the Democratic Executive Committee meeting in Kings county.
Mayor Bill Thompson
Comptroller David Yassky
PA Mark Green
DA Joe Hynes
BP Marty Markowitz.
It's worth noting that Fidler is not endorsing the only public advocate candidate from Brooklyn, Bill de Blasio. The two haven't generally seen eye-to-eye.
