Councilman Stephen Levin was in the news quite a bit last week after rescuing a pregnant cat with bullet wounds on the BQE. This week has been even better for him starting with an award from PETA according to the Brooklyn Paper:
The group sent Levin (D–Williamsburg) a framed certificate and a box of vegan chocolates, saying that his actions showed great bravery.
“Councilmember Levin went to extraordinary efforts to make sure that this cat escaped a life-threatening predicament and made it to a safe haven,” said Colleen O’Brien. “Peta hopes his kindness and tenacity will inspire others to stop and help animals in need.”
But wait! Councilman Levin’s great week didn’t stop there. He also got engaged in Italy:
Levin told The Brooklyn Paper that while vacationing in Italy this weekend, he asked his long-time girlfriend Ann Carroll to marry him and — just like she did when he asked her if she should help the cat, she said “Yes”.
“I am very excited to be engaged and my fiance and I are very happy,”
I mean of course she said yes. The man rescued a sick cat last week! Jay Z is just happy Stephen didn’t ask Beyonce.
