Who's supporting Hunley-Adossa against James in the 35th? Construction unions

Well, challenger Delia Hunley-Adossa may or may not garner direct support from employees of Atlantic Yards developer Forest City Ratner in her challenge to unseat incumbent Letitia James in the race for the 35th District seat in the City Council, but, thanks to the New York Times's blog The Local, we know who is supporting her: construction unions that have rallied in support of the project. 

(Update: She's raised nearly $4000.)

According to The Local, which gained a report from an attendee at Hunley-Adossa's inaugural fundraiser, the candidate did not pronounce the words "Atlantic Yards," a topic she has avoided

But it had to be in the background. After all, one host of her event was Charlene Nimmons, who, like Hunley-Adossa, runs a fledgling nonprofit organization that signed the Atlantic Yards Community Benefits Agreement (and, likely, is funded by the developer).
