Hiram's heir apparent

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.


Friends of Julissa Ferraras

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

Well this one seems simple enough. If we can't shame the State Senate to not seat Monster-ate, then we have to defeat his self-appointed successor.

These specials are non-partisan affairs that rely on GOTV more than anything else. Party affiliations, Parkside Group Connections et. al. are not as important as getting voters out, so let's get our people in the 21st to send Julissa Ferraras home.

Ferraras is running against Francisco Moya, a local resident, Democratic district leader, and political operative with ties like Democratic County Leader Joe Crowley and Governor David Paterson.
