The newest news about KPC is in the KCP --- and be sure that you don’t miss the COMMENTS following the 2/7/17 article in the Kings County Politics blog
a likely candidate in the early chatter,
Kevin Peter Carroll sort of slipped off the radar for a few months ---
Well, HE-E-E’S BA-A-A-ACK --- and
looks like it’s going to be in a big way
According to Steve Witt’s Kings County Politics blog, “In a move not unexpected, l, the Democratic District leader of the 64th Assembly District [ which includes a piece of Bay Ridge] will announce [ ] he is running for the open 43rd District City Council Seat [sic] this year…. Carroll grew up in the district and is a graduate of the New York City public school system having attended McKinley Junior High and Fort Hamilton High School in Bay Ridge. He then continued his academic career in the City University system (CUNY), graduating from the College of Staten Island with a BA in political science and a minor in history….” (See “Carroll Jumps Into The Bay Ridge City Council Fray” by Stephen Witt, 2/7/17, Kings County Politics/ Elections [http://www.kingscountypolitics.com/carroll-jumps-bay-ridge-city-council-fray/]).
Mr. Witt’s piece also noted that there are similarities between Mr. Carroll and both Justin Brannan and Nancy Tong. Like them, Kevin Carroll is well connected politically. He is part of a Carroll family that has long been politically active in Brooklyn. That clan includes his cousin, (D-Park Slope, Windsor Terrace, Kensington).e currently works forNorthern Brooklyn. And, KPC is also a founding member of the political club, Brooklyn Democrats for Change (BDFC).
The coverage by the Kings County Politics blog was sort of thin and incomplete. However, that was somewhat made up for by the COMMENTS following the article. Among the noteworthy info concerning KPC appears o be a lingering animus by many Democrats concerning Kevin Peter Carroll’s first leadership race in the 64th AD --- that race involved some strange goings-on vis a vis the former leader in that AD, Ralph Perfetto.
