Melinda Katz is holding a fundraiser at Portofino restaurant in Queens where a high ranking democratic official will make a special appearance.
With the 2013 City Council races already heating up, many are wondering who will get the coveted County Endorsement and it just so happens that none other than political boss Rep. Joe Crowley will be the surprise guest at the fundraiser.
Will Crowley make a surprise endorsement?
Katz, a lobbyist, will be locked in a tough battle for control of Borough Hall with heavyweight opponents including City Councilman Peter Vallone, widely considered the frontrunner, Councilman Leroy Comrie, and State Senator Jose Peralta. Both Peralta and Comrie have considerable ties to the party, so at this point the County endorsement is really a toss up.
Even though Crowley will be attending more fundraisers, as reported by Colin Cambell, we will venture to guess the the real clue is which fundraiser he doesn’t attend.
Below is the invitation in case you decide to go and if you do, please send us video or audio.
Please join us as we kick off Melinda Katz’s campaign for Queens Borough President!
