    Why Andrew Gounardes Didn’t Win the Election

    Andrew Gournardes won Bay Ridge, but didn’t win the entire district because of the district zoning laws. 


    Golden lost in Bay Ridge – his own area.  But Golden got the votes from the surrounding areas where strange district lines are


    I will post a few maps on 10/7/13.

      I’m with you.It’s a shame he didn’t do something – really anything to show that he wasn’t just using this position as a stepping stone.I met his mother and she seemed very nice, but there was no history or prior works in the community.

      I don’t think Gournardes understood what this job entailed. He seems to like the image of politicians instead of realizing what is really needed here. Woman’s rights and rent was his big concerns. The thing is that isn’t on the top for most that are voting in our area.

      Gournardes and the Bay Ridge Democrats are a little too wet behind the ears to take advice. In a few years, they will be a bit older and maybe more open minded.

      Bay Ridge had a lot of people at the voting center, but we were the youngest ones there. The people there aren’t renters – they are home owners who rely on Golden to protect their interests.

      I’m sick of women crying about equal pay. When you act the right way and have the right credentials, you get the right pay. How do I know? Because I work in male dominated area. I always get paid a fair salary.

      I was just looking to see if Andrew won and found this page. I think a lot of people were voting for him based on his Aunt being a teacher. That’s probably not the best reason to vote for someone. I guess you are right about the fact that he hasn’t done much and could do more before the next election.
