From the Daily News:
Assemblyman Nelson Castro, who is listed on Councilwoman Melinda Katz's campaign Web site as a supporter of her comptroller bid, has thrown his support to one of her opponents, Councilman John Liu.
Castro said he and his club, the West Bronx Democrats (not incorporated), have long been Liu supporters and were on their way to endorsing him for public advocate when he abruptly switched races back in March.
Since Castro had already started talking to Katz about backing her in the comptroller contest, he decided to remain loyal. But since then, he has been disappointed by her lack of attention to his district.
"We tried working things out with her," Castro said. "But when we invite her to things in our district because she's our candidate, she hasn't been responsive. If we call, we need people to be there for us, and I think that's what John Liu has done. He has proven he's willing to do that since even before he was running for this office."
