Queens Machine vs. Paul Vallone

From City Hall:

Democratic district leaders, including political consultant Evan Stavisky, his mother, State Sen. Toby Ann Stavisky (D-Queens) and Assembly Member Ann Carrozza (D-Queens), have pressured Paul Vallone, one of the race’s two presumed frontrunners in the six-way race, to drop out, Vallone said.

But Vallone is refusing.

“Three people don’t control the district,” said Vallone.

Party leaders are instead backing Jerry Iannece, a longtime community activist and chairman of Community Board 11. They maintain that Vallone, an attorney, does not have deep enough roots in the district to win a general election.

Thankfully there are still 4 others to choose from...

Wrong Paul!

The Stavisky clubhouse scum have long controlled the district.

But they're afraid they can't control La Famiglia Di Vallone's muscling into their turf.

Your a new political gangster to them.

So they prefer to support that malleable "chooch" Jerry Ianecce who they intend to control like a finger puppet.

And Jerry doesn't mind having Toby's index finger up his ass prompting him to nod yes on a vote.

After's a clubhouse digit and Jerry wants to climb higher than the city council someday so he'll smile despite a little momentary discomfort.

Paul Vallone is an outsider using daddy's name and money to buy the 19th Council District. It's time for him to go back to doing business in Astoria.

The voters in the 19th are too smart to be victimized by the carpet bagging Vallone clan and Chuck "follow the buck" Apelian.

Notice how City Hall News made Steve Behar appear like an afterthought in a Vallone-Iannece matchup. Why is that? It is because he's a maverick endorsed by Avella?

Vote Behar.

He owes nobody nuthin,
and will do what's best for the neighborhoods he will represent.

What exactly has Vallone done for the district? And I'm not asking sarcastically. I really want to know.

Now that's the million dollar question Italian girl. The answer is simple, NOTHING. I am a St. Mel's parishoner,and during the cell phone tower controversy he ran away, took his kids out,and put them in St. Andrews He runs away from problems, not solve them.

Is this the same strongarm tactic that rangel is using against cuomo?

Hate to break it to you but "WRONG PAUL" is DEFINITELY NOT Curtis Sliwa posting.

I'm a home grown boy who's watched both the Vallone and Stavisky dynasties along with the rest of those damned clubhouse stale farts do nothing but fatten themselves off of our neighborhoods for decades!

What we get from in exchange for our stupidly cast votes that return them to office...once, thrice, thrice...are some picked over meatless bones tossed onto the floor!

We need some fresh faces. I'm going to start with Behar.

I just returned from the Belmont section of the Bronx (Arthur Ave.) yesterday and while reading one of those free Italian newspapers I noticed an ad for the Vallone & Vallone law firm.

This paper circulates in the tri state region, Florida, Long Island, Italy.

Paul was also pictured on the front page appearing in the Douglaston/Little Neck Memorial Day parade!

That's a pretty big geographical area to be served by Queens based

It looks like La Famiglia Di Vallone is hooked up good with clients!

Is there a connection between the Vallones and Vallo transportation?

no connection at all.

Why do you people think Kevin Kim is a good choice..

Never voted in this district....
Worked with Gary Ackerman for... Less than a year... Does that all of a sudden make him the most experienced candidate.. Not at all.

Raised 300,000 dollars 85% of which is from out of the STATE.. 2 FROM OUT OF THE COUNTRY...

When you guys bash Vallone for money..or some other lie, stop and think just for a second.
