No "bio" of Jon Levenson is complete without mentioning that he may be facing criminal charges for his incompetence in his first term in office.

Jon Levenson has been censured 6 times by the Constable Ethics board. He is the only incumbent Constable to have ANY censures, let alone 6.

Brandon Schmoll has done a great job of documenting Jon Levenson's incompetence on his website.

All Democrats and Independents should check out Brandon's website prior to voting for Constable. Public Safety is not a Partisan Issue.

Oh, and the bio of Jon Levenson forgot to mention that his primary qualification for the job was that he used to be a cage fighter.
