I've begun work on this.

There's no Wikipedia article for this election yet. There's a 2013 election article for the NYC Council, but neither a 2009 nor a 2017 one. I was a bit disappointed...

Here's the first version, please test: http://campaigns.270soft.com/2017/12/29/nyc-city-council-2017/

A few suggestions from first glance:

-Party colours: Reform should be purple, Independence light yellow, Women's Equality light-green, and Liberal, while I'm having a difficult time find a definitive colour tied to them, I'm pretty sure it's not grey.

-I know it was a dull, monotonous election with low voter turnout and little interest (like the city election here in Edmonton in October of this year), but why do the Liberal and Women's Equality Parties, and, though I don't know who he or she is, Yoni Hikind (they don't even have a Wikipedia page) have such non-committal and apathetic platforms (basically, straight centrist all the way down), which is certainly NOT how their platforms (at least the two full parties) are portrayed ideologically in their Wikipedia articles.

Brooklyn's 44 district race was largely about local issues. Hikind didn't make much in way of statements on Citywide issues

I more or less guessed on the Liberal and Women's equality party platforms (they're very minor parties)

Will do. I'm keeping the liberals the same for now.

v. 1.2

-adjusted candidate strength of Brooklyn district  35 and 40 candidates

-added event related to De Blasio corruption.

What has happened to shift candidate strength in Brooklyn, out of curiosity, in an RW context?

Because of issues relating to simulation results in those districts becoming too unrealistic because too many parties are investing too much money in those districts.

I thought Brooklyn residents traditionally complained of a lack of investment in their borough, compared to Manhattan, Queens, and the Bronx, but probably more than Staten Island - but I guess that would refer to infrastructure, social projects, new business ventures, and other day-to-day improvements, both by public and private money, not election ads and campaigning.

Well Staten Island staged a Stexit referendum in 1993.

I'd love to fix the scaling issues on the party images, if you'd let me! I'm poking around right now, though I don't know much about the race itself.
