One Republican and several Democrat candidates were in attendance --- Folks like: Bob Capano, Justin Brannan Kevin Peter Carroll and Peter Abbate
McCabe and Quaglione were AWOL --- giving more of an indication that they aren’t running
Virtually all of those mentioned as candidates for the 2017 race for the 43rd City Council District were at the Community Planning Board 10 meeting on Monday evening.
That means Liam McCabe and John Quaglione have most likely taken themselves out of the running, because they were notorious by their absence.
As has often been the case at recent gatherings, Bob Capano was accompanied by former Brooklyn GOP County Chairman Craig Eaton. They worked the room in tandem; and, to all outward appearances, they were greeted in a friendly manner by most of the Bay Ridge activists in attendance, many of whom engaged them in lengthy conversations about politics and upcoming races.
The whole panoply of those mentioned as likely 2017 Democratic Party candidates for the 43rd Council seat were there as well --- including Justin Brannan, Kevin Peter Carroll and Peter Abbate.
One does have to wonder if McCabe’s and Quaglione’s bosses have given them the order to “STAND DOWN” from any moves toward the 2017 nomination for the Council seat for Bay Ridge and the neighboring communities.
