There is very nice profile of Roosevelt Island's City Council Member Jessica Lappin in today's New York Sun. There is also a candid shot of Ms. Lappin with her son. The article stresses Lappin's desire to separate her work life from her personal one. I can appreciate that as I try to keep photos of my own kids out of this blog as well as direct facial shots of children living on the island.
Back on topic, the article is worth checking out as portrays Lappin as a legislator looking to make a difference and not one looking for the quick sound byte / media shot to impress their constituency. She indicates in the article that being a new mother impacts how she looks at the City and I expect how she acts as a Council Member in this City.
