They either want to vote for him or beat him up
From the Queens Chronicle:
The Harley Davidson rider, guitar player, area school story-time reader and hard-on-crime Astoria councilman unapologetically spoke his mind about several issues concerning his district at the Queens Chronicle office on Friday. In fact, Councilman Peter Vallone Jr.’s no-filter approach, he said, has prompted him for about two years to not ride the trains — fearing physical confrontations with people opposing him, some of whom have assaulted him in the past. However, although some disagree, many back the councilman as shown by his 10 years in office and over $1 million raised for future campaigns.
So what’s next for this councilman with some controversial views?
“I would love to stay in the position I’m in, but I’m term-limited out and there’s only one spot available. I’m taking a serious look at it,” he said.
Helen Marshall’s Queens borough president position will be available in 2013.
Does anyone believe this guy ever rode the subway to begin with?
