This could be a hairy move…
Queens Assembly Member David Weprin, who currently has a smooth upper lip, has announced that his trademark moustache could be making a comeback– although New Yorkers will have to pay to see it.
Weprin has declared that he will grow back the facial fur should his campaign reach its monthly fundraising goal of $50,000 before Dec. 31.
The legislator announced his candidacy to become the city’s top fiscal earlier this month. Weprin currently represents Assembly District 24 which covers Richmond Hill, Briarwood, Jamaica Hills, Jamaica Estates, Oakland Gardens and Glen Oaks.
In an unusual plea for campaign funds, Weprin’s moustache does the talking.
“As David’s longtime accessory, I know that he is the best candidate to fill this position,” the mustache said in a campaign e-mail Friday. “We’re on the razor’s edge.”
