RACE TO CITY HALL

Park Slope Welcomes Anthony Weiner with Open Arms

“Hey Anthony, you’re the only one that can win and keep us on the right track!”
Anthony Weiner campaigned in Park Slope Sunday.

Anthony Weiner campaigned in Park Slope Sunday.

Anthony Weiner is cashing in the level of support he had banked on before jumping in to the race for mayor. At a Father’s Day Sunday street fair in Park Slope, the reception for Mr. Weiner was glowing. Politcker’s Jill Colvin met up with with some passers-by voters who were pretty much enthused about Mr. Weiner’s candidacy.

“You’ve got my vote,” shouted one woman as she passed. “Hey Anthony, you’re the only one that can win and keep us on the right track!” yelled another.

“We’ve got your back,” said Dominick Mattina, 74, another resident, who had nothing but good things to say about the recently-announced mayoral candidate. “I always liked him … The way he talks, the way he acts. And he helps the people out–that’s the best.”

Maude Brown, who lives in Kensington, told Mr. Weiner that she’d urged him to run for mayor back when she met him years ago. “Finally!” she exclaimed, wishing him luck after signing his petition. “I never wanted him to resign. I would have toughed it out.”

“He’s fairly progressive. And I think for the city, they need somebody who’s got a lot of chutzpah and charisma,” said Ms. Brown. “At the moment, I would say he’s my number one.”

Myrna Tirado, 25, a former student of Mr. Weiner’s mom who now works as a banker, also said Mr. Weiner had her vote. “I wish him the best of luck,” she said. “I hope he wins.”

She further praised Mr. Weiner for being “honest and truthful with the public,” despite the fact that he repeatedly lied to cover up the now-infamous Twitter photo he accidentally sent out publicly.
