A reader passes along the following invitation from the longtime assemblyman for a “Making a Difference Rally” with Brooklyn legislators and union leaders. The group is slated to meet at Brooklyn Borough Hall and march over the Brooklyn Bridge, where they will join the folks down at Zuccotti Park.
It will be interesting to see how much of a turnout Mr. Lopez gets, as the parade can be seen as something of a test of strength for his popularity within his party. Also, the move seems like something of an effort on Mr. Lopez’s behalf to tap into something of the progressive energy that some of his opponents like the reformers over at the New Kings Democrats political club have unleashed.
