From the Daily News:
When it comes to campaign war chests, City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. is the king of Queens.
Vallone has more than $850,000 on hand, more than any other member of the Council’s Queens delegation, according to recent filings with the city Campaign Finance Board.
“I’m humbled to have so much support that I’m already fully funded for a Queens-wide primary,” Vallone said on Wednesday.
Vallone, whose father was the first City Council Speaker, said he has been “seriously considering” running for Queens Borough President in 2013.
So Vallone wants to be Borough President. Or does he?
Expect a very Astoria-centric presidency if this dude becomes BP. And take a look at what that nabe looks like after decades of Vallones...
