Check out the article in City Limits about Tony Avella and "Reverend" Billy Talen entitled OTHER DAVIDS READY THEIR SLINGS IN RUN FOR MAYOR
The article stipulates that the undercurrent of disapproval about Bloomberg has to do, among other issues, with his support for real estate developers OVER neighborhood individuals and groups and down-from-the-top decision making rather than allowing community constituents to have their say and help make the policy that affects their daily lives so much.
Avella has been clearly and intelligently voicing the rationale for ousting Bloomberg from office.
“The Revolution has begun!” says Avella. “It's a fight every day to do the right thing in this city. I'm doing this because somebody has to do it.
Somebody has to stand up.”
