Super plastic. Like a walking, talking headshot. He reminds me of that Parks & Rec arc when Ben and April went to work for a politician they thought might legitimately be a robot.

Had major issues with being gay. (As did many of us who are over 40.) He's been open about that, which is great, but he's sublimated that by being completely all about work and his image, 24/7. Does not seem to have close friends or legit relationships.

Doesn't have a boyfriend because he hasn't met the perfect Central Casting specimen. But he's gotten plenty of attention from his win and is likely actively auditioning. And he won't stop until he finds someone perfect.

people used the same arguments for illegal immigration. it still doesn't fly.

but I knew the comment would attract idiots that desire uncontrolled sprawling and spending on money pits... and need the lower class to suffer perpetually as their slaves, mail order brides or rough trade.

one couldn't get rid of all the lower class, obviously, but there many multi-generational poor that would do better elsewhere but find themselves trapped by the demands of the city. . . while it would also free up services to help those unable to make it elsewhere due to health, ability or age and eliminate many of the divisive political issues the city is facing now; from rent control to education.

besides in regards to new developments, NYC needs to get back to live/work spaces and more commercial 'urban' agriculture projects than aiming for the leaning tower of low income babel.

reducing the dependents on the city's public services has more economic merits than inviting even more to create wider gaps between the highest and lowest members of the classes.

but whatever... revel in your religious conservativism and romanticism of the poor on your path to becoming a saint like teresa.

r85 please, NYC is a salad bowl. goto L.A. if you want a melting pot.

If we're concerned about the locally economically challenged, particularly those most likely to end up homeless or otherwise dependent upon NYC's strained resources... why would you be against improving their outcomes by allowing their own resources and earning potential be maximized by a change of scenery -- offering them more living space and greater opportunities that is more frequently limited to the middle or higher classes?

The city becomes a trap for those near or below the poverty line and this often becomes a multigenerational prison that is difficult to escape from. -- just as the same is true within rural communities.

Our urban centers suffer from the liberal-esque rebranding of the rural's religious distain for achieving economic freedom and prosperity; "But the meek shall inherit the earth, and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace."

the oversimplification and bastardization of this philosophy has led to more people remaining poor, dependent and oppressed .

r84 agreed. historically, in the long term, unprepared transplants and refugees as well as young adults fare better starting out and building themselves up in smaller communities than in metro cities.

There's many incentives to be in a metro city but it's simply not practical for most, especially those lacking financial security and a localized support network.

it's not for disdain of the lower classes that I say we provide greater opportunities for them to leave the city (or yes, to reduce the number of transplants that are at too high of a risk for keeping afloat) but rather recognizing the compounded problems of living in NYC when you're close to the poverty line... especially for young adults and those with bigger families.

Plus NY, overall, needs more lifeblood outside of NYC as do surburban and smaller towns in surrounding states -- so, it's not as if they can't still commute....

if the idea of providing a NY credit for struggling and at-risk families/individuals to move to states that already offer residental recruitment bonuses, and yes, some of these opportunities aren't limited to just skilled workers, although, obviously that provides additional opportunities and incentives.

Plus didn't y'all want to turn red states blue? That's only going to be achieved by moving people into the communities that middle upper class libs won't relocate to aka the burbs, smaller towns and even the bfe boonies.


it'd never happen, of course, because like how homeless services are an industry... so, too, is the trap of the welfare system... it provides too much opportunity FOR GOVT to redirect funds for pork spending and appear to be 'working' with the least amount of effort because the greater public are pavlovian idiots that allow it to happen. . . it's feel good for the very public that points to this economically challenged population as the bulk of the problems on its streets and public transport, the lead cause of virtually every strained resource of the city but again, react like hypocritical tards when it comes to doing more than just throwing unclaimed money at it.

anyone remember 80s NYC? Because that was solely the result of this feel good mentality.

Was chief staffer for Ritchie Torres when he was on city council.

City Council will see districts redrawn as per every ten year requirement using latest census data. After partisan democrat reshuffle of both state and congressional districts, most believe city will go same way.

There may be some cause for breaking up current Far Westside district. Chelsea, Hell's Kitchen, etc... have seen expansive residential growth as Far Westside from 20's up through 50's has seen an explosion of new development. Hudson Yards, Hell's Kitchen and Theatre District in particular has grown with rezoning of vast areas formerly industrial/commercial (think along High Line, Hudson Yards, etc...) to residential.

Regardless if district is split or otherwise changed doubt it would not continue to be dominated by democrats. However as with rest of Manhattan Far West Side is becoming increasingly wealthy as lower income households either die off, or move away. Nearly all new housing in area is luxury or at least has rents or sales prices far more than average New Yorkers can afford. If it wasn't for state/city pushing "inclusionary" and "affordable" or "low income" housing for new developments, there wouldn't be any of that in new construction for area.

As with everything else Adams has done so far, he's picked an African American career politician to run city council redistricting.

All eyes are on results of redistricting because as per law all city council members elected last year will have to stand for elections held in 2023, just two years after being elected instead of usual four year term.

Republicans did rather well in 2021 elections, and while no where near even 1/3, you can bet the farm democrats will be seeking to reverse those gains come 2023.

For those unware, 3rd city council district has had a long list of elected representation.

Thomas Duane, Christine Quinn, and most recently Corey Johnston.

If it were not for term limits Corey Johnson likely would have run again and been reelected. District turned on Christine Quinn for a number of reasons, this included being too close to Bloomberg (and overturning term limits), and then failing to save Saint Vincent's hospital from closing.

Guy has one year (there will be city wide council elections in 2023), then assuming he wins another four to make a name for himself before being term limited out of office. Then like every other career politician Erik Bottcher will have to find another office to run for instead.

Carolyn Maloney and Jerry Nadler represent congressional districts that overlap 3rd city council. Both are career elected officials who don't see being pushed aside by Erik Bottcher.

Daniel J. O'Donnell (Rosie's brother) represents the 69th state assembly district which covers westside, but further north (West Harlem, Morningside Heights, parts of Upper Westside). So there is always a possibility of going after that seat.

In a curious twist of NYS/NYC election laws those running for an office don't actually have to live in district they seek to represent. Richie Torres didn't live in district, but ran and won anyway.

Or perhaps after eight or whatever years on politics Erik Bottcher like the other transplant (Corey Johnson) will simply slink off to sidelines of private life.

Corey Johnson was replaced because of term limits. Term imits don't apply to State Assembly members. Our sister, Deborah Glick's only career (more than 30 years) has been politics. Never had a real job, Guess you figured I won't vote for her.

A 15 year old and a 17 year old? No such rumors about that gay schlub from Saten Island.

Although he does look exactly like I would imagine a gay Republican politician from Staten Island to look like.

R110 PATH is not a subway. It's an Interstate Railroad between New York and New Jersey.

by Anonymousreply 138March 6, 2022 11:45 AM

PATH is a subway by any logical definition r139. It runs underground, uses almost the same cars as the NY subway and uses the same payment card. You go to herald square and on one side you can board the NY subway and the other side you can board a path. I'm honestly not sure what you are arguing.

It occurred to me that you might be confusing PATH with NJ transit. NJ transit is a commuter rail system like LIRR and Metronorth.

R132, I believe he was around 23 at the time. This happened around 20 years ago.

As a teen I thought he was so hot and cool but as an adult I think it’s messed up.

by Anonymousreply 142March 7, 2022 4:58 PM

You realize you can blackmail him with that, R142, if you have proof. Even if you consented and enjoyed it, its technically rape (but not "rape rape" per Whoopi).

by Anonymousreply 143March 7, 2022 5:07 PM

R143, please, he doesn't even remember and he just needs to say it didn't happen

by Anonymousreply 144March 7, 2022 5:22 PM

R144, but I wasn’t the only one. This was an open secret back then. He wasn’t hiding it. He even showed me off to his friends and had them sexually harass me (he had them grab my dick to show how big I was and how quickly I got hard due to being so young and excited) and after I left the picture he was still dating guys that looked like they were barely 16. That’s why I’m so surprised he became a politician (well maybe not) considering he has a shady and open history dating underage guys.

Let it go. It was eons ago. He may have stopped going after young boys.

If he actually did do something then obviously he needs to be called out and on trial. All I see is a bunch of claims though - where are the receipts?

by Anonymousreply 155March 7, 2022 6:59 PM

A bunch of claims......lol. That's how it is in most rape or abuse cases. Most abusers don't leave "receipts"

Yes R156. But in those cases people file lawsuits - they don't talk about it on gossip websites.

See R145. There are witnesses:

R160. I wouldn't, feel free to file. But around here I tend to look at these things with skepticism. It would be just like Datalounge to tear down a gay politician. Look at how people here feel about Pete.

Lots of trolls on this thread, even for DL. He is an incredibly hard working guy for his constituents and on the larger issues on the right side of history. He’s nice as can be- an inspiration for young people. I know him casually through mutual friends.

My guess is that he is single mostly because he works so hard- he’s driven. Bless him- he gets my vote and $upport.
