SILENT & SUPPOSEDLY UNDECIDED COUNCILMAN JAMES SANDERS JR. IS TARGETED BY THE WORKING FAMILIES PARTY

The Working Families Party is turning up the heat on seven of the Council members listed as “undecided” on Mayor Bloomberg’s term limits bill with a targeted mailer that puts a new twist on that infamous 1970s-era “Drop Dead” DN headline.

The back of the mailer reads: “(Council member X) hasn’t made up his/her mind about term limits. But the people have. We voted…twice.”

“New Yorkers twice voted in favor of term limits for politicians, but now the City Council is trying to vote themselves longer terms anyway. That isn’t democracy, that’s political maneuvering and blind ambition.”

Some 100,000 copies of this mailer are landing in mailboxes today – one day before the first Council term limits hearing.

The targeted Council members include a mix of freshmen and term-limited members who (until recently, at least) had their eyes on other offices, including:

Alan Gerson, Melinda Katz, James Sanders, David Yassky, Sara Gonzalez, Jessica Lappin and Peter Vallone Jr.
