Fossella will NOT seek re-election

This is breaking all over. Fossella is officially not seeking re-election. What does this mean? Well a very shortened campaign for Republican potentials who want to jump into this race.

May 22 is the date to watch;

In one sign of the political turmoil here, the borough Republican Party said yesterday it postponed candidate interviews that had been scheduled for next week.

The interviews, which were supposed to be held May 15, will now likely be held May 22, according to borough GOP chair John Friscia.

They can't delay it much later as June 3 ballot petitioning starts. Expect DA Dan Donovan to have most of the field cleared for him. If there is a fight it will come from Sen. Lanza with Fossella's backing.

I was hoping he would run but the writing was on the walls. Voters on SI were outraged by what's been going on with him and were seriously looking at what he hasn't done for SI. Vito was a dead man walking.
