Mark Gjonaj 80 A.D.

   
    On Sunday May 27th Mr. Mark Gjonaj announced candidate for the 80th Assembly seat held a Memorial Day barbecue for veterans and the community at his campaign headquarters on Lydig Avenue. I stopped by briefly to chat with Mr. Gjonaj, some of those who attended, and took a few photos while I was there. I also asked many people about their current representative in the assembly from the 80th A.D., and got many different answers. The answers ranged from "I don't know who my representative is", "Jeff Klein", "Naomi Rivera", "Kenny Agosto", and "Jimmy Vacca". 

     When I said that Assemblywoman Rivera wants to run on her record the answers ranged from "What Record", to "I guess that means we may see her more now because she is up for reelection". Below are a few photos of the event.
