Fine Fare Serves as Battleground in City Council Fight for District 1
The Fine Fare supermarket on Clinton Street has become de-facto ground zero in the bid to unseat Margaret Chin from City Council. The District 1 incumbent is taking heat from three challengers, and this hub of retail activity – nestled amidst the Seward Park Co-op complex – is apparently the voter-rich battleground.
Case in point, yesterday afternoon.
Largely considered to be behind Christopher Marte, the other contender, Aaron Foldenauer, pulled out all the stops. He approached nearly every shopper for a quick elevator pitch and flyer handout. He also hired an Uncle Sam mascot holding a vote for Foldenauer sign. Marte’s team, meanwhile, set up a table near Fine Fare’s entrance to distribute its own literature.
Margaret Chin was nowhere to be found. We didn’t see the third contender, Dashia Imperiale, either.
The election is tomorrow, so get out there and vote.
