State Assemblyman George Latimer is a helluva sport.
The local pol and resident of Wainwright Street showed up in grand form Saturday morning for the Osborn School Carnival dunk tank. Refusing a wet suit on a cold October morning, Latimer, who does not know how to swim, climbed aboard the dunk tank nattily dressed in a suit, ready for business.
At $2 for three throws at the dunk tank it did not take long before Latimer enjoyed his chilly plunge on behalf of the public good.
Three cheers for Latimer's public spirit!
Let's see if next year some of Latimer's compatriots will join him in the tank.
