Anyone attending the Democratic Town Committee extravaganza Thursday night at the restaurant of venerable Town Chair Mario Testa?
Ah the food, the wine, the rumors, the gossip, the lies. Should be a whole bunch of it dished out at the DTC fundraiser. City Clerk Fleeta Hudson will be honored for her long service to the party. Bravo Fleeta.
City Councilman Bob Troll Walsh tells me he’s attending with his woman Judith. Troll, are you sure you want to subject Judith to that crowd? Just tell her it’s a prelude to the Barnum Festival parade.
Maybe we’ll hear a little more about candidates for the Board of Education, or possibly a few more primaries for City Council. So far that point of interest centers on the Upper East Side team of Andy Fardy and Ann Barney taking on incumbent Bob (Bridgeport Port Authority slayer) Curwen and running mate Kevin Monks in the 138th District. But, wait, could incumbent Rich Paoletto reverse himself to seek reelection?
Rich was out because of some restrictions regarding his HUD-funded city position, but maybe HUD may relax the regulations? If so, Rich may be back in. Whatever, that primary will be a good one.
Now Joel Speedy Gonzalez dropped some news in the prior post about Isa Mujahid running a primary in the 135th Council District, State Rep. Chris Caruso’s old council territory, occupied by Warren Blunt and Richard Bonney.
Who’s Isa Mujahid? I don’t know Isa, but according to the city’s website Isa works for the Health Department’s lead poisoning prevention program as an epidemiological investigator.
Hey, that’s what we need, someone on the council to keep contagious diseases at bay. Well, Isa, if you’re out there, let us know your plans.
