*** CFB Reports must be filed every year. She will not be running,****
Audrey Pheffer, a former Assemblywoman and presently the Queens County Clerk, will be running for Queens Borough President, according to her latest CFB report.
Pheffer has amassed $346,899, although her last contribution was reported in 2008.
In a tough and crowded primary, she will face off against Peter Vallone, Tony Avella, Leroy Comrie, Jose Peralta, Melinda Katz, and Barry Grodenchik.
In 2001, Pfeffer abandoned her campaign for Borough president to support Helen Marshall who was handpicked by former Democratic Party boss Tom Manton.
Pheffer resigned from her Assembly seat in 2011 to become the Queens County clerk after the post was left vacant by the death of Gloria D’Amico in 2010.
To date, she has not made a public statement declaring her intention although she has the second largest war chest behind Peter Vallone who leads the pack with over a million dollars.
- Peter Vallone: $1,016,948
