An aide to City Council candidate Julissa Ferraras emailed to say she’s having several fund-raisers between now and January 11th, with a few notable hosts, including State Assemblyman Jose Peralta and City Council members Leroy Comrie, Diana Reyna and Letitia James.
The name-dropping shows some continuity of support among other elected officials despite the now-unhelpful qualification that was once perceived to be Ferraras' biggest strength: her job as chief of staff to Councilman Hiram Monserrate, who is supposed to be leaving the Council for the State Senate.
Before that, Ferraras was tied to a non-profit group whose financial relationship with Monserrate has been questioned.

Excellent! Sounds like just the right person to fill Hiram's shoes!
