And who can blame him, amiright?
Last month, the New York City Councilmember sent Amy Poehler's Parks and Rec character Leslie Knope a letter in which he expressed love for his favorite episode (“The episode where Leslie seeks to catch a teen vandal in the act is a great portrayal of Leslie’s absolute commitment to her community – although I’m not sure I approve of her more heavy handed tactics...") and invited Poehler to Brooklyn to attend a City Council meeting in character. “I think the Pawnee Councilmember-Elect could learn a lot from our experiences in Brooklyn,” Lander said. “Brooklynites show how parent involvement in PTAs or community stewardship of public spaces can help solve problems that Pawnee is also facing.”
Surely Amy Poehler is waaaaay the hell too busy with her career/kids/husband to sit in on a meeting about zoning changes in Brooklyn, but still -- we can all dream, can't we?
