A Council Without Clarkes


The Brooklyn council once seat held by Una Clarke — and more recently by her daughter, Yvette — is officially leaving the family now that Yvette is heading to Congress.


Given all the other names circulating as possible replacements, I thought it was at least worth asking if there was any chance that Una would consider running again for her old seat.

Here, from an email from a close aide close to Yvette, was the response: “ABSOLUTELY NOT!”
