    New Yorkers are still dying of Covid-19 and variants, yet our supposedly responsible, and supposedly progressive and supposedly courageous Democratic elected officials continue to appear publicly, indoor and out, without masks, in crowds.

    Show me a candidate in any of the Downtown races willing to accept the public shaming, willing to show leadership on the pandemic, and they’ll have the support of all the sensible, quietest voices in the room.

    At the moment they all seem to believe, in the pandemic sense, that they are above the law, or health reality.

    Speaking truth to power, and speaking AND DEMONSTRATING truth to constituents, no longer exists in clubby Downtown get out the vote for our so-called local hero politics. Getting Covid is now acceptable to the so-called anti-pandemic Downtown left.

    The anti-mask, “pandemic is already over” crowd has neutered Downtown electeds, who continue to count on luck, rather than show true, ongoing, til the end of the pandemic leadership. Which means continuing to emphasize boosters, continuing to emphasize vaccination completion, and emphasizes mask wearing in crowds.

    One death continues to be too many. Any positive case is a possible death.
