On Tuesday, June 9th, The Committee of 100 Democrats, the Ben Franklin Club and North Bronx Democrats have endorsed:
Mayoral Candidate: William Thompson Public Advocate: Eric Gioia Councilman: 11th District: G. Oliver Koppell
'Let me be clear. this is our hardest endorsement. Anthony Cassino has been a great neighbor as chairman of Community board 8. His neighborhood passion, like many of our members, is inspiring, but the real problem is Anthony did not ask the leadership in Bedford Park, Norwood or van Courtland to help-he asked my friend-Founder of Liberty Democratic Association, a wonderful EAST SIDE club to represent this WEST SIDE area. Our Councilman, Oliver Koppell is a prime example of what we call "30 years of political gerrymandering" gone haywire but to his great credit, has been accessible and helpful in our area since 2001. There will be a new day- one day-and then and only then-will Anthony Cassino be of the most highest of consideration".
