It’s to be an open event, with tickets unnecessary, but available via tinyurl.com/riHillary.
Coincidentally, next Saturday is Roosevelt Island Day, which could afford the candidate a chance to join in planting and cleanup – or just to walk among Islanders out for the day for the traditional petting zoo or carnival rides.
Clinton plans to honor the Roosevelts, as former President Bill Clinton did at the formal opening of the park (see msWIRE.us/3304). As a campaign move, it provides her an opportunity to identify with the pre-eminent Democratic icons of the 20th century.
As The WIRE went to press, the event time was being given as 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., putting it in direct conflict with Roosevelt Island Day festivities set to start, in Good Shepherd Plaza, at 9:00 a.m.
