Brooklyn without Marty Markowitz in charge? Fuggedaboutit!

Brooklyn used to be a favorite place for comedians to poke their fun. They got the laugh, but no more.  Brooklyn has added some shine to its image. It’s undergoing an economic bonanza and is now home to a spanking new arena, complete with NBA basketball team

The man taking much of the credit for Brooklyn’s makeover is this quintessential New Yorker.  He was born there and he’s been at the helm as the borough’s president for the past 12 years.

But all good things come to an end….and Marty Markowtiz is leaving the office this year because of term limits.

Marty Markowitz is the guest on PIX11 News Closeup with Marvin Scott. Tune in (or set your DVR) for the whole show, Sunday morning at 6 a.m. on PIX11.

    That is really sad…WHY IS IT THAT WHEN A POLITICIAN IS DOING GOOD THEY GET REMOVED BECAUSE OF TERM LIMITS AND WHEN THEY SUCK THEY MANAGE TO GIVE THEMSELVES AS MUCH TIME AS THEY WANT?!
