The upside of betrayal.
After Senator Martin Dilan called for Senator Tony Avella to be excommunicated from the Democratic Party, the lawmaker announced his committee assignments Wednesday, and now we all can see why Tony truly left the Democrats in the dust:
Avella is now seated on the Banks, Codes, Education, Housing, Construction and Community Development, Insurance, Judiciary, and Transportation Committees.
A quid pro quo? A betrayal of values and campaign promises? Whatever you may call it, Tony Avella is smiling down from Albany.
