New York Observer's PolitickerNY Bronx City Council Candidate Copies Manhattan Candidate’s Website by Ross Barkan
The internships section of the Pedro Alvarez website was identical to the section on the Ben Kallos website.
Ben Kallos, a candidate for City Council on the Upper East Side, was apparently offering campaign internships in the south Bronx.
Mr. Kallos, for his part, seemed unperturbed about another campaign copying his website. Rather than address the identical website sections when reached for comment, he touted the strength of his own campaign.
“The fact that our campaign’s open platform focused on solutions and progressive internship program have become a model demonstrates that we are not only leading by example, but changing the dialog,” Mr. Kallos stated.
