Beep Contender Announced By Facebook, Confirmed By Councilman

That Gregory Meeks guy really grinds my gears, said Comrie who is said to be one of the nicest guys in politics that works diligently on behalf of his constituents. Maybe Sanders will get that nod for Congress after all.

A mysterious Facebook group places City Councilman Leroy Comrie (D-27) in the spotlight for the next Queens Borough President.

The group’s first status update occurred on December 12th and was posted on the wall of Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY).

According to the group’s information section on the Facebook Page, “we are a coalition of concerned citizens who are supporting Leroy Comrie for Queens Borough President in the 2013 elections…join us…”

“But we don’t know where the group came from,” said Leroy Comrie in a telephone interview. “It came up on our google alerts, we’re curious too,” he added.

The site looks generally positive according to Leroy, but said it did not originate from his staff or campaign. When asked if he is considering running for Queens Borough President, Leroy said, “I am definitely looking to become the Borough President, I feel that I have a lot of strength in municipal government and working with different communities, I’m a positive relationship builder — it’s a natural transition.”

The Comrie administration has not made a public announcement, yet.
