Sources tell The Post that our borough president, Marty Markowitz, is “strongly considering” a run for mayor. On the one hand, the story notes that while Markowitz has “enormous popularity” in Brooklyn, he’s also pissed off opponents of Atlantic Yards and bike activists over his stance against the Prospect Park West bike lane. On the other, the article says that in “2008, before term limits were extended so Mayor Bloomberg could capture a third term, Markowitz in early polls led all potential Democratic mayoral candidates—including Weiner, Quinn and Thompson. A March 2008 Quinnipiac poll even had black voters favoring Markowitz over Thompson, who, unlike Markowitz, eventually ran for mayor before losing to Bloomberg in 2009.” How do you like his chances?
