Avella endorses Ober
Despite Elizabeth Crowley's claim that she "has the support of every Council Democrat" in the Council District 30 special election, Councilman Tony Avella came out to Maspeth in the rain this afternoon to throw his support behind fellow Democrat Charles Ober. The Independence Party has endorsed him, and two Dem clubs recently defected from the Crowley camp to also support Ober, including the 504 Democratic Club. This may turn out to be a real contest despite the best efforts of the Parkside Group and the rest of the Queens Machine.
