NYC Brings Back the Old Lever Voting Machines for today's primary
NYC Primary Election September 10, 2013
and candidates with ideas from the past.
The city switched to electronic scanners in 2010 but is bringing back the old levers today because of logistics because there most likely will be a run-off election for Mayor.
Nostalgia: Bringing back old machines makes sense since the leading candidate wants to bring back NYC to the 1970's. He is running an anti Bloomberg campaign. Of course Bloomberg is not running. He wants to go back to the good old days of The Dinkins administration.
The front runner Bill DeBlasio has no record of acheiving anything ever. He was the public advocate and did absolutely nothing the past 4 years. The only thing he has ever done during his career is picket real estate developments.
In my opinion the city has never been better than these past 12 years. I will be voting for Christine Quinn, the speaker of the house who actually has a record of acheivement. If she wins NYC will have it's first female and openly gay MAYOR (openly gay as opposed to hizhoner the great Ed Koch former closeted gay mayor,-)
If de Blasio wins NYC may have it's first communist mayor. I'm sure he'd make a fine dog catcher in Queens since he claims to be an animal activist that pledges to shut down the horse carriage industry and he also claims to be the candidate for the outer boroughs. "The tale of two Cities".
But running the greatest city in the world. He's way out of his league. He has never done anything. Cute ads won't run the city. No Way! In my opinion he will be worse for NYC and real estate than 9/11, Lehman brothers and hurricane Sandy combined.
Vote Anyone but de Blasio!
