Lovefest: Katz and the Vallones


Vallone and Katz Endorse Each Other

Vallone excited the large crowd by introducing and announcing the mutual endorsement of Melinda Katz (D) Councilwoman District 29, who is running for New York City Comptroller. Katz and Vallone expressed appreciation and importance of each other's support for their respective Democratic Primary Campaigns.


From the Queens Campaigner:

City Councilwoman and Comptroller hopeful Melinda Katz (D-Forest Hills) picked up endorsements from Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. and former Council Speaker Peter Vallone Sr., her campaign announced Tuesday.

“The city is lucky to have so many qualified candidates running for citywide office this year, but there is no one more qualified than Melinda Katz,” said Vallone in a statement. “I’ve always thought that land use is the most important function of the City Council and she has shown such great leadership and integrity as chairwoman of the Land Use Committee. I have no doubt that Melinda is the right candidate to lead the city during these very difficult economic times.”

Vallone, whose law firm specializes in real estate, and Katz, the Land Use Committee chairwoman, have crossed paths many times before and recently worked closely together on the redevelopment of Willets Point. Vallone was representing some of the largest Willets Point businesses at Willets Point and had been lobbying hard against the plan before an 11th-hour deal was brokered between the city, Council members and three of Vallone’s largest clients — House of Spices, Fodera Foods and Tully Construction.

The Land Use Committee and Katz, who previously had said she had reservations about the project, voted to approve the project the next morning.

First endorsement - Dennis Gallagher - before rape - but I already knew he was a bum.

Peter Vallone - started the slush funds with the blackmail of Council members. Also did his best to stop Lead Paint Bill. If he endorsed Mother Theresa I wouldn't have vote for her.

All I can say is good luck Bayside.

A surprising small group of people run everything. They control the press. The control the information their community recieves. The know how divided the public is and how to keep them that way.

They do not control the blogs.

Someday ... someday ....

Dear Melinda:

Could we please have a stop sign at Groton and 68th? You know, the intersection where the kid got hit by a car two weeks ago?

Sincerely,

Someone who votes.

Katz should shed the jackets and unbutton the blouse a bit. After all you need to look good while earning your votes. Problem is that Katz maybe gay?

Why no husband or boy friend or single Mom's sperm doner in sight - she may disappoint her voters!

Will she out herself??

There's one small problem with that. If you look too sexy, you're not taken seriously. If you dress too conservatively, people think you look manly. It's a double-edged sword I tell ya.

OMG! Can you say Greta Von Susteren . Eye lift Face Lift and boob job. Probably a tummy tuck too.

And she's only what...44?

She looks like a freak.
And she still walks like a man.

She is not gay. She actually plays on that to cover her relationships with middle age men who are married.

And she has nothing to show while unbuttoning.

Politics is full of ugly men but they can't do an Ivana Trump and get rid of it.
