Here's an excerpt from a piece recently posted online:
"This promises to be a particularly dirty election season in Sunset Park as one candidate for Sunset Park’s City Council seat, David Galarza, is already desperately slinging the dirt in his third attempt to defeat incumbent Sara Gonzalez."
Not exactly sure who the person being spoken about in this article is, but someone sent this to me and it's about Sunset Park, so I'm postin' it!
If I learn anything more about this David Galarza character, I'll forward it along. So far, he's not sounding too good.

Then, how Time Equities intended it to look. Ah, the plans of mice and men.... Time Equities has withdrawn their bid to purchase the buildings from the City and spend $100 Million to renovate them as a result of the current economic crisis.
The City, apparently, will now try and purchase the building from the federal government for $1 in order to drive down the asking price for whatever developer is to be selected. Only time will tell....
