From the Daily News:
The selection of the next Queens County Clerk could set off a political scramble with a ripple effect throughout the borough.
Democratic Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer is reportedly being eyed to replace longtime clerk Gloria D'Amico, who died in December.
If Pheffer gets the post, it opens up a seat in a district where Republicans have made some gains in recent years.
In addition, Pheffer's possible appointment would take her out of the race for Queens borough president in 2013, narrowing the field for City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr.
Vallone (D-Astoria) planned to run for borough president in 2009 before the extension of term limits allowed Helen Marshall to seek another four years. Queens County Democrats were prepared to give Pheffer their endorsement in the 2009 race.
"It is absolutely something I am seriously considering for 2013," Vallone said yesterday. He has amassed almost $1 million for a run and is also planning a March fund-raiser to add to his war chest.
And if you think that's bad, there's also the prospect of Mayor Liu.
GOD HELP US ALL.

Borough President Vallone?
Posted by Queens Crapper at 12:10 AM
This will certainly improve things.
"Mayor Liu" is ABSOLUTELY going to happen He's been gearing up for a run since his first term in the city council
Time to leave for GREENER pastures...
Ah yes, Vallone for Borough President will allow all of Queens to fall into ruins as has Astoria. The streets are a mess, the garbage in the streets, overwhelmingly overcrowded, astronimical rents, graffitti capital of queens, muggings, roberies, and the most overdevelopment anywhere in the world. WELCOME TO QUEENS, HOW MUCH YOU DONATING? WITH VALLONE AND LIU IN CHARGE, HUANG WILL BE THE BUILDER OF CHOICE.
oh please. the guy barely won his Council elections against who again ? his brother couldnt win a council seat in the whitest, most italian, most catholic part of the borough that votes in republicans. vallone jr. will win astoria. thats it. cmon, the kid is delusional. a jerk off with a mid life crisis, which is why he just bought a Harley ! yeah im sure he was a tough guy when he was a kid and used to hang oput ina storia park a lot. or was he home playing some weird dungeons and dragons game. what a loser.
he should run, and then lose, and then he could sit home and shadow box in front of a mirror, or pull out his badge making believe he is a crime fighter, or blaming the county politics, or the blacks, or the jews, or shelly silver ......
Jr. will lose the Boro Pres race, Paulie will lose the City Council race and we'll be finally rid of all Vallones!
He wasa smoking da papagna w me and then going to papagallos to hang with the malaca guidos.
Hey crappy I was under the impression that you had a soft spot for Vallone.
Good to see thats not the case.
I think you have a soft spot in your brain.
Vallone, watch out for Grodenchik, now deputy Borough President, formerly of Parkside. HE may be our next BP.
Ah yes, look out for Grodenchick from one piece of shit to another. Who is more accessible to the developers? Close call there.
In the recent roundup of aged mafiosi...the feds seemed to drop the ball by stopping short of a royal flush out!
They apparently bypassed La Famiglia Di Vallone...and some other political mobsters!
Maybe Charlie "the judge's" family is too well entrenched to be touched.
Meanwhile the Vallone section of Astoria is whistle clean.
Mi casa no su casa.
No garbage near our front lawn!
And figlio Paulo lives in posh northeasteast Queens.
Snow removal is good there too.
