I Have a Huge Crush on Gifford Miller
That's right. I have a huge crush on City Council Speaker Gifford Miller and will probably vote for him in the Democratic Mayoral Primary because of it. But the reasons I have a crush on him are the same reasons I think he'd make a decent mayor (except for the cute way he talks like he has a piece of hard candy in his mouth and that he's just really attractive). Tonight I watched him at the Parks1 Mayoral Forum; and in addition to being charismatic and feisty, Giff was also well informed on the park issue (specifically park maintenance, which everyone else seems to forget about while they're busy allocating capital funds). Though he's a politician and shied a way from a few issues, I felt he was generally honest (which is really the best you can get from a politician these days) and not afraid to be the first one to stand up and answer any question. Plus, did I mention he's really cute? Think how much more fun NY1 could be to watch. And, God, he's so hot when he gets snarky with the other candidates!
