There are several exciting races in city politics this year, but on Thursday, the battle for Brooklyn's borough president became the exact opposite: Not exciting and not a race, as State Sen.

His would-be opponent, John Gangemi, needed to hand in a petition with 2,000 signatures by July 11, but New York Supreme Court Justice David Schmidt ruled only 1,809 of them were valid. So now Brooklyn's borough president race is a one-man show.
