Former City Councilman Joel “Speedy” Gonzalez, once a Democrat, once a Republican, once a Working Families Party voter (are you dizzy) is now a Democrat again. He rejoined the Democratic Party on Tuesday with an eye toward the mayoral primary in September. Who’s Joel’s horse?
If former Mayor Joe Ganim gets in the game he says he’s leaning toward supporting Joe. If not, he’ll likely support Mary-Jane Foster. Gonzalez served three terms on the City Council while Ganim was mayor. Joel says it’s time to add a little spice to the Democratic primary so he’s suited up and ready to go.
