Some might argue, “Why re-invent the wheel ???” However, something needs fixing with so many flat tires on the bus going, “Round and thump, round and thump, round and thump…. all through the town”
Stephen Witt, obviously channeling his inner Claude Raines as Inspector Reynaud, must have told Kadia Goba to “Round up the usual suspects….” in advance of her anything-but-tell-all post on the Kings County Politics blog, creatively entitled, “Potential Candidates Eye Harris Assembly Seat” (since the italics were the most interesting part of that headline, I left them in there)
Basically, this post looks like something intended to barely inform the uninformed about who might be running for the probably soon to be vacated assembly seat now held by the indicted Assemblywoman Pam Harris (See “Potential Candidates Eye Harris Assembly Seat” by Kadia Goba, 1/12/18, Kings County Politics Blog/ Elections [https://www.kingscountypolitics.com/potential-candidates-eye-harris-assembly-seat./]). It should be noted that contrary to what is stated in the title --- not everybody mentioned in the post indicated that they were eyeing anything.
Based only upon whom was mentioned in the article, it would seem that Chris McCreight should start off as the prohibitive favorite, and easily able to lap this field if he does have the strong support of his boss, Councilman Justin Brannan.
But, let's wait and see how this all plays out --- in the short run and in the long.....
Also, it should be noted that there is an oddly placed mention of an old joust between Lucretia Regina-Potter and Brooklyn Conservative Party Chairman Jerry Kassar (and I do wonder why that’s in there)….. Kassar does seem to have a compulsion though; it's like an obsessive-compulsive disorder that makes him turn upon candidates that he once supported; and then attack them viciously if they dare to run without his support. It's like he is resentful of candidates who actually RUN for public office. (BTW --- Does anybody know anything more about that ????? I'd really like to delve into that some more some time soon..... Like, before he does it again.....)
