Mark Chiusano is off this week. We just wanted to let you know that we’ll be back in your inbox Monday, Aug. 21.

Have a good week, and as always, be in touch with tips, questions, suggestions, complaints, offers of friendship or free food, opinions about the Mets farm system and other matters of local import: mark.chiusano@amny.com.

Coming up next week: a mayoral primary debate as campaign season grinds into gear. Look for more coverage of the race as we get closer to Primary Day (Sept. 12).

Until soon,
