Seriously, how awesome is Nate Shinagawa? You may remember him from 2012 when he was the Democratic candidate in the race for New York’s 23rd Congressional seat. I covered his race in an article for Hyphen Magazine, and though the Republican incumbent kept the seat, Nate hasn’t stopped moving forward. He remains one of the most well-liked members of Ithaca’s county legislature and has been pulling some very Cory-Booker-local-superhero stunts lately.
He and Ithaca’s mayor, Svante Myrick, went around shoveling peoples’ driveways during the giant snowstorm upstate New York got this week!
