Vazquez Gears Up For General Election

Martha

We’re sure Vazquez will run a spirited campaign on the issues, but for her the real fight looms next year.

Long-time Democratic activist and District Leader Martha Flores Vazquez is once again making news.

Vasquez, who has successfully defeated the Queens County Democratic Organization and powerful political figures to maintain her district leadership, is now seeking an uphill fight in a city council race against powerful incumbent Peter Koo.

Those who know Vasquez as a savvy political operative and good government advocate know that she has little to no chance of defeating Peter Koo but Vazquez felt that all elected officials should have an election in November especially when it comes to electing candidates to a 4-year term.

Sources close to the Queens Democratic Party say Vazquez is crazy like a fox. While she knows her chances at victory are slim, Vazquez is keeping her name recognition high and campaigning to take a second bite at the apple for state assembly while maintaining her district leadership post.

Vazquez will be running on the Independent Jobs and Education ballot, line D in the general election.

Controversial Ex-Pol Is Ready For Another Round…In Long Island!

Where Are They Now? Ann-Margaret Carrozza

AMC is the former State Assembly Member for Queens AD 26 (Bayside). She’s an elder law attorney and she lives in Glen Head, Long Island. Rumor has it she’s mulling a run for Assembly…and get this: where she actually lives this time in posh Nassau.

AMC did not run for reelection in 2010 amidst a residency scandal, and her exit opened up the books for now state Assembly Member Ed Braunstein who has a fake Twitter feed in his likeness of nearly 400 followers.

Ann-Margaret Carrozza is rumored to be making another run for Assembly... In Nassau County

Ed even kept AMC’s staff on board and took her old office. You know, in the name of reform. But I digress. What will AMC do now? Hmmm she was Deputy Whip, and never made a peep in Albany, so I presume she left on good terms with the powers that be.

I wonder was this part of a larger, long-term, calculated plan of Democratic strategy? You decide.
