Hunley-Adossa's supporters fight back on The Local, with rhetorical opposition to AY

After seeing their candidate avoid the press for a couple of days, supporters of 35th District Council challenger Delia Hunley-Adossa are fighting back, posting comments here and here on the New York Times's blog The Local.

There's one interesting tactic. Two Hunley-Adossa supporters here say almost the same thing: "I do not agree with the Atlantic Yards project" and "Although i do not agree with her participation in the Atlantic yard project...."

Could it be that Hunley-Adossa's supporters have such nuanced positions, even though Hunley-Adossa leads rallies for Forest City Ratner? Or is it that some rhetorical disagreement with AY is necessary to pull the undecided?


  1. What we all need to understand is that NO plan goes thru without some dislikes. No matter whatyou do, you can never satisfy EVERYONE.

    With that being said, yes there will be Hunley-Adossa supporters that will say they are not in complete favor of the AY, and there will be those Hunnley-Adossa supporters who are in complete favor of the AY. Thats the beauty of personal opinion!

    Look at the facts they speak for themselves.......Tish James supported the 2004 Downtown Brooklyn Plan, which NEVER was designed to bring affordable housing to the Community!! Its funny how she had no problem signing off on that project which consist of private developers, but has cut her ties with Mr. Ratner! Tish James is DIRTY! Shes out for herself, she'll say what she needs to say to keep people occupied!

    vote against the INCUMBANT on September 15th!!

    Stay Tuned.....I'm just getting started!!
