City Councilman Bill de Blasio has made it official and announced his candidacy for Brooklyn borough president in 2009. In an email to supporters, he outlines some of his reasons for jumping into the race. Quote:


More than ever, Brooklyn is a city unto itself. Our diverse neighborhoods have become magnets for new families and new business from around the world. Brooklyn's unique arts and cultural scene is flourishing and achieving global acclaim.


At the same time Brooklyn is booming, too many of our communities are becoming unaffordable for working families. Shoddy fly-by-night construction is ruining the fabric of our neighborhoods. Traffic and overcrowded schools are encroaching on our quality of life.



I am running for Borough President because I believe I have the experience and vision to strengthen and protect Brooklyn neighborhoods in a time of unprecedented growth and change.
