Ralph was the CONSENSUS CHOICE to replace his long-time nemesis Kevin Peter Carroll as Brooklyn member of the State Committee and Brooklyn Executive Member from 64th AD
Perfetto is anxious to get back to work with his own former "co-leader" Joanne Seminara rebuilding the Democratic Party infrastructure in the northern end of Bay Ridge, where he says that Assemblyperson Nicole Malliotakis has built up something for the Republicans in the Dem vacuum of the last few years
Ralph plans to reach out to all the existing local Democratic clubs to ask for their help in his party building efforts. That includes embracing the same club that had launched the career of Kevin Peter Carroll, the man that had taken the leadership of the 64th AD from Ralph several years ago --- the "Brooklyn Democrats for Change."
Another important contact for Ralph is Councilman Justin Brannan. Ralph said that he was very close to Justin before he became a member of the NY City Council; and that longstanding relationship will be cultivated now that they both hold politically significant offices simultaneously. Brannan's base is with the "Bay Ridge Dems," a club that Ralph hopes will be 100% onboard for his rebuilding program in the 64th AD.
At this point Ralph says that he is only partially vindicated --- he intends to continue fighting the charges brought against him several years ago by DA Hynes, who was doing a political contract for Perfetto's political opponents --- "John O'Hara's charges were overturned, now I'm using the same team to work on mine...."
ALL OF THIS AND RALPH PAID FOR BREAKFAST AT THE BRIDGEVIEW, TO BOOT.....
