Ognibene to run against Addabbo

From the Queens Chronicle:

Ex-City Councilman Tom Ognibene, a Republican, is circulating petitions to run for the state Senate against incumbent Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach), a source tells the Queens Chronicle.

Ognibene, a Middle Village attorney, served as a city councilman representing Middle Village, Maspeth, Ridgewood and Glendale from 1992 through 2001. He attempted to take back his Council seat in 2009, but lost to Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Middle Village). He later ran for lieutenant governor as the running mate of Carl Paladino, but in a fluke lost the GOP primary to Greg Edwards, county executive of Chautauqua County in Western New York, the preferred running mate of unsuccessful GOP gubernatorial candidate Rick Lazio.

There isn't a single district in Queens that a Republican can carry. Even Mr. Ulrich's city council district will be gerrymandered out of existence next go-round. Zip, nada, nilch. A Rep cannot win. Period.

How about term limits for Assembly/Senate seats!?!? These people get elected , do next to nothing positive, become wealthy and leave with a fat pension.
