In a recent press release, Griffith's folks says he's collected $75,000, an accomplishment that has "cemented his position as the most viable challenger to current 36th District City Councilman Al Vann."
[Read the press release here.]
Possibly, Vann will be reacting to this in the coming hours, days or weeks; but then again incumbents have a tradition of saying no to debates or other requests that give attention to challengers. Well, let's see.
What gives Griffith an attractiveness is his immersion in the housing economy and his focus on the plight of sub-prime victims and others who've been financially bludgeoned by banks and their collaborators.
The self-declared top challenger declares and vows: "The 36th Council District needs a representative who won’t ever take a day off, and my campaign is pushing forward with plans to make personal contact with every single voter.”
Call this the Bed-Stuy Watch.
Below you can find videos [in four parts] in which Griffith (apparently at a NetRoots conference) expounds of his view of the exploding (probably better to say imploding) housing market.
