    Amazing! Margaret was a fantastic conucilmember who ran a fantastic campaign. Here's to 4 more years of Chin!

    And a very strong advocate and representative of the tenants of Knickerbocker Village. Thank you Margaret!

    Margaret has been neither amazing nor strong as a representative. Most of us involved in community issues know this. Nevertheless, she is our rep and we are committed to working with her going forward. Hopefully Margaret learned from this year's tough primary fight that if she does not take the side of the community and fight for us first, we will not stand for it. Here's hoping for new, improved representation from Chin these next 4 years.

    This is like the convention of political hacks. So sad. Chin has been completely ineffective as a rep.

    Margaret Chin is an excellent representative for parts of her district; she sometimes ignores other parts. An indicator: When Margaret announced from the steps of Independence Plaza, most of the people in the — tight — photograph were Chinese, and not from this part of the district. Margaret is a nice person, and she stands for important things. She does not, however, fight strongly for many things of importance to parts of this community. Like most legislators, whose powers are limited mostly to fiscal control, she is — has told me this — terrified that in forcing a stalemate with, e. g., the mayor, using that single power, the city might be put in the hands of the fiscal control board again. Using power is always a problem, but fear of doing so is still more of a problem.

    Obviously, some of Chin’s shills and political cronies are pushing her propaganda on this comment section.

    To find out what the average voter thinks of her, read what her constituents from the Village think of her inauguration.

    Then read this and people’s comments. http://thevillager.com/2014/01/09/judge-says-city

    The Villager reporter asked Chin what she had to say about the tremendous legal victory of the community in defeating NYU’s grandiose expansion plan that restored to the community the parkland that Chin tried to give to NYU to build 1.9 million sq.ft (Empire State Bldg is 2.4 million sq. ft.)

    Chin’s reply “No Comment”

    No Comment – at the victory of the the people over the 1% real-estate developers.

    Margaret Chin = never saw a developer she never liked.
