Frank Powers passes away
via the Advance;
Frank Powers, the retired Wall Street executive designated by the Staten Island Republican Party to run for Congress in November, died today. He was 67.
Sources close to the family said that Powers apparently died in his sleep and was discovered in bed by his wife, Dianne, about 10 a.m.
The Powers family released the following statement, which was read by Powers' son Brian, 23, who was joined by his brothers in front of the family home on Todt Hill:
"Our dad, Frank Powers, passed away early this morning. As you can imagine, this is a very difficult time for our family. We would appreciate privacy at this time as we make the necessary arrangements. We shall have more information when the final arrangements have been made. We thank you for your kindness and cooperation and ask you to keep our dad and our family in your prayers."
There will be no posting or analysis from me on the race today
