Myrtle Avenue is in the news again as Kevin Powell announced his candidacy for Ed Towns’s Congressional seat at an event at the Five Spot last Sunday. Ed Towns, our current Congressman, has been in office representing our Congressional District for about 26 years!

Many believe that the odds are not in Kevin Powell’s favor but Kevin hopes to make waves by energizing the 98% of the district’s voter base who *don’t* vote in the district’s congressional elections. Apart from age and generation, one big distinguishing factor between the two politicians is that Ed Towns endorsed Hillary Clinton for President while Kevin Powell helped Brooklyn for Barack win our district for Obama in the New York Primary. The event was charming in its cosmopolitanism as Kevin demonstrated his ability to speak several of the languages spoken in C.D. 10 (including Spanish and Haitian Creole) and expressed a strong desire to support appropriate policies regarding countries of interest to the district.
