Next in line?

From the Daily News:

The protege is ready for the torch to be passed to him.

City Councilman James Sanders Jr.’s primary victory last week over scandal-torn state Sen. Shirley Huntley unofficially kicked off the race for his Council seat several months earlier than expected.

Sanders (D-Laurelton) will have to vacate his Council post before he can be sworn in to the state Senate, triggering in a special election in early 2013.

Donovan Richards, Sanders’ chief of staff, has been gearing up for the race even before Sanders bested the incumbent of Senate District 10.

Mr. Richards has a great chance of winning the City Council race because he is the only candidate that everyone here in Rockaway knows and has worked with in the councilman's absence besides the other candidates 1- Jacques Leandre ran before and lost and we just found out he is part of some weird racist religious group. 2- Earnest Flowers ( I think that's his name ) our Community group knows nothing about him nor have we seen him in Rockaway.
