[img_assist|nid=57|title=The W.F.P. focuses on Jessica Lappin in East Midtown.|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=420|height=315]
It’s part of the Working Families Party’s campaign to block the Bloomberg-backed bill.
Lappin, despite the considerable attention, is among the undecided, and her decision on this issue is worth watching. Unlike 35 of her colleagues, she’s not term-limited in 2009 (she was elected in 2005), so the issue is somewhat academic for her.
Also, many of her constituents are Wall Street executives–exactly the sort of voter to whom Bloomberg is trying to appeal to.
