The Daily Marty
December 3rd, 2007

The numbers are in and they confirm what every Brooklyn resident already knows: When it comes to self-promotion their borough president, Marty Markowitz, is second to none.

The Daily News reported yesterday that Markowitz has spent has spent $260,000 in taxpayer money this year alone mailing out his thick quarterly newspaper, Brooklyn!!, dwarfing similar expenditures by his fellow borough presidents. (And this apparently just includes mailing, not printing, paper or labor costs.)

Does this serve the residents of Brooklyn, or does this more serve the interest and ambitions of Marty Markowitz?” asked Dick Dadey, executive director of Citizens Union, the good government group whose sister organization is the publisher of Gotham Gazette.

You decide. In its 36 pages, the paper mentioned Markowitz 17 times and had 26 pictures of him.
