This One's in the Bank
Lock, Stock and Barrel
Attention Speaker candidates. In case you had any ideas of pursuing the vote of one-time Mayoral candidate, Charles Barron, I wouldn't waste your time ... except if you're one Leroy Comrie.
In case you missed it in this recent Newsday piece:
Councilman Charles Barron of Brooklyn said he wanted a minority candidate to get the post because white males had too long held positions of political power, while no black or Latino ever has been mayor or council speaker.
"It is time for a person of color," he said in an interview last week. "I definitely feel strongly for Leroy Comrie. He has an institutional memory and he had been around a long time."
