As parents picked up their children at P.S. 8 in Brooklyn Heights after the first day of school today, politicians swarmed the gathering crowd. Jesse Strauss (shown above) handed out flyers and said his goal was a new middle school in the district. Steve Williamson and his brother (who used to teach at P.S. 8) passed out campaign literature while State Senator Daniel Squadron handed out Parent Resource Guides. Doug Biviano (whose kids attend P.S. 8) was again showing his outrage at Albany's corruption and dysfunctionalism.
