Barry kicks off BP campaign
From the Daily News:
Barry Grodenchik is entering the crowded field of Democratic candidates for Queens Borough President with an official party/fundraiser on January 8th at Young Israel of Jamaica Estates from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Grodenchik, a former Assemblyman and long-time staffer at Queens Borough Hall, said his experience sets him apart from the pack which includes City Councilman Leroy Comrie, City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., former City Councilwoman Melinda Katz, State Sen. Tony Avella and State. Sen. Jose Peralta.
“I have the most county-wide experience of any of the candidates,” said Grodenchik, 52. “Combined - I have worked in the Borough President’s office for 14 years.
Grodenchik, who grew up in the Pomonok Houses in Flushing, started as an aide to former Assemblywoman Nettie Mayersohn.
He also worked at the Parkside Group, the lobbying and political consulting firm.
We can see by the company he keeps that he'd be a traditional choice for borough president...
