It would not have "potentially barred" him because the bill's proponents have said all along that the bill did not apply to municipal prosecutors. The amendment clarifies what was already in both the text and intent of the bill.

I don't think "NIMBY" is at issue here. I think Solomon does want to include more tenant protections as development goes forward, and wants more concessions from developers. But I do not see him opposed to development per se, or development in his ward, or more density in building. He wants things like MORE affordable housing in units. And he wants it for its own sake, not as a poison pill to kill development.

Some of his opposition may be to juxtapose himself against the mayor. But NIMBY is not accurate here.

I hope Solomon loses. He's way too NIMBY and has no understanding of how economics work. The NAs and Yvonne will certainly line up behind him though.

I suspect James will squeak out a win due to incumbency advantage but there must be some real weakness if a credible challenger has come forward. Maybe the pro-development silent majority has had it with him bad mouthing developers and having nothing to show for it. Or maybe businesses are tired of his onerous restrictions.

A matchup between two good choices. This is like the game in the "March Madness" bracket that you circle early on knowing you want to watch this one.
