Like the mighty titans of local coverage they are, the Brooklyn Paper gets candidates for the 33rd District (i.e., Yassky’s seat) to reveal their stances on a Residential Parking Permit program. Read them here.

Just read these candidates positions from the 39th District on Permit Parking and it got me thinking. Lots of points of view.

Just heard through the BPL site that the city plans to cut $17.5 million from the BPL’s budget. According to their site, the drastic results of that will be to:
- ELIMINATE as many as 272 positions – that’s one out of every four full-time BPL employees.
- REDUCE service to five days a week at most neighborhood libraries – with limited weekend hours.
- BUY 185,000 FEWER books, DVDs and CDs
