The Eric Gioia Story, as Told by Eric Gioia

Eric Gioia, the city councilman who is running from behind in a race for public advocate, is out with a nearly two-minute-long Web video introducing himself. It was posted on his campaign Web site this morning and pointed out to me by a campaign aide.
In the video, Gioia recounts his life story. He says he earned the money to go to college thanks to the “good wages negotiated by a strong union.” (That union, which goes unmentioned, is 32BJ, which has endorsed Councilman Bill de Blasio in the public-advocate race.
At the 0:36 mark, a black-and-white photo of Gioia with Bill Clinton appears, and he talks about his “lucky break” getting to work in the White House.
