As Hurricane Sandy rolls in, we’re working overtime over at our sister site, Sheepshead Bites. We’ve created a Hurricane Sandy resource page filled with up-to-the-minute bulletins, alerts and news for all of Southern Brooklyn to let you know about the latest information from city and state sources.
We’ve also got a live video feed and chat box, an interactive storm tracker, a transit tracker and continuously updated information about closures, service cancellations and more.
Go to Sheepshead Bites’ Hurricane Sandy Resource page, bookmark it, and check back often throughout the next few days to make sure you’re prepared!
Just to reiterate – all of our storm coverage is being handled over at Sheepshead Bites!
On Tuesday, June 26, voters will hit the polls to vote in federal legislative primaries, choosing Democratic or Republican candidates for Senate (Republican only) and Congress. This year’s elections, however, are complicated by redistricting, which changed the borders of the existing district and left many residents with incumbents they may be unfamiliar with.
We’ve put together this pre-primary primer to help you understand the geographic and demographic changes within the district, as well as background information on incumbents, their primary challengers (if any), and challengers in November’s general elections.
Here’s a quick rundown on how to use this guide before Tuesday’s primary:
