City Hall News Picks “Winners and Losers” After Turner Victory
City Hall News listed it’s ranks of “Winners and Losers” recenty, and we thought a couple of names were worth sharing.
One notable familiar face is Brooklyn Conservative Party Chieftain Jerry Kassar, who is mentioned for his involvement in the Bob Turner race. City Hall News notes that the win for Turner might provide a buffer of GOP support for Republican regular Marty Golden. Both men have not always been the subject of adoring pieces on this blog (and we have been treated in kind).
While reading about Kassar, our contributors noted that he has done an excellent job distancing himself from GOP Chairman Craig Eaton, as has his employer, Sen. Golden.
It has been said to us by more than one insider that, as Eaton’s paranoia over the discord in the party consumes his decision-making process, Kassar has been steadily gaining traction, such as with Rep. Michael Grimm’s staff appointments and, more recently, Mr. Turner’s victory.
We give credit where credit is due, and Mr. Kassar should continue to tread carefully as the GOP writhes in pain from Eaton’s poor leadership.
