Say goodbye to Councilman Dan Halloran.
First tweeted by NYDN’s reporter Lisa Colangelo, City Councilman Dan Halloran will not be seeking reelection to the 19th Council District.
In the past month Halloran has faced a number of federal criminal charges as well as an ethics probe from his colleagues. In response, Halloran finally crumbled under the enormous pressure and issued a statement announcing he will not seek reelection as he continues to vindicate his honor.
“Regrettably, I must now focus my attention on clearing my name and restoring my reputation, while I continue to discharge my sworn duties as a member of the New York City Council,” according to a press release from Halloran’s office.
Halloran was one of three Republicans in City Council.
Just a quick recap, Queens attorney Dennis Saffran (who was recently endorsed by the Queens GOP) has declared his intention, meanwhile the rest of the political world is still speculating about Rudy Guiliani’s second cousin stepping up to the plate. Halloran’s former Chief-of-Staff, Democrat Chrissy Voskerichian also filed a campaign committee.
