The bench: City Council District 49 race, WFP

I have always liked the Working Families Party so this combination may be a big deal;

Democrat Debi Rose has picked up the endorsements of the Working Families Party; Local 1199 SEIU United Healthcare Workers East, and the New York Hotel and Motel Trades Council (HTC) in her campaign for the vacant North Shore City Council seat.


1199 SEIU plans to direct mail, phone-bank and go door-to-door to its thousands of members and retirees in both districts on behalf of our endorsed candidates.


The bench: City Council District 49 race

As of today here is who in on the ballot
Tony Baker
Ken Mitchell
Donald Pagano
Debi Rose
Paul Saryian
John Tabacco

And who isn't
Tony Cosentino
Tom Curitore
Rajiv Gowda

The bench: City Council District 49 race

Today's post is all about petition challenges. Ballot signatures were submitted and challenges ensued. Here is where we are at;

Tony Cosentino, the only Republican, is off the ballot
Rajiv Gowda was removed from the ballot by the Board of Elections
Tom Curitore's petition was challenged by Ken Mitchell
John Tabacco's petition was challenged by Ken Mitchell

Rev. Dr. Tony Baker, Debi Rose, Paul Saryian and Ken Mitchell seem to have no challenges and will likely be on the ballot. Since the only Republican failed to qualify for the ballot this seat will be won be by a Democrat or Independence party member.

Fossella's new trial, take II

After being found guilty and sentenced to five days in jail Fossella decided to try again in hopes of a more lenient verdict based on his blame everyone but himself strategy;

An Alexandria, Va. court has set aside two days for former Rep. Vito Fossella's trial on charges that he drove while under the influence on May 1 last year.

Fossella, who was sentenced in December by an Alexandria District Court judge for having driven with a blood-alcohol-content level of .17, will appear before an Alexandria Circuit Court jury April 13 and 14.

Seriously just go to jail. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.
