Here Comes Reverend Billy

The Comptroller's got a Twitter account to keep us tuned in to his (possible) run for Mayor. Mayor Bloomberg's got commercials showing real NYers being thankful that he's mayor. And Reverend Billy's got barbeques to drum up support for his run for Mayor. And he's going to be in Sunset Park!

On July 19th, Rev. Billy and his 40 member gospel choir will be hosting a BBQ (really a picnic due to that pesky and oft ignored No Barbeques rule in Sunset Park) to help gather signatures to get his name on the ballot for mayor. And it's also an opportunity to speak out.

from Gaylen, or the Rev. Billy Talen for Mayor campaign:

Not only will Billy be talking about what he would like to do for the neighborhoods in NYC, but we would love to hear from the people of Sunset Park. We'll have a megaphone for speakers and a table for literature, so I'd like to invite you to join us in raising awareness on the issues that you feel are most important to your neighborhood.
