Favors Repaid

Dear Editor:

To the victor go the spoils concerning former NYC Councilmember Melinda Katz winning the Democratic Party primary for Queens Borough President. Don't be surprised when Congress member and Queens County Democratic Party Chairperson Joseph Crowley and Queens Borough President Melinda Katz rewards State Senator Tony Avella, NYC Councilmember Leroy Comrie, Deputy Borough President Barry Grodenchik and State Senator Jose Peralta for being loyal members in good standing. They all took the "hint" from Crowley, folded their tents and endorsed Katz. Even Avella assisted Katz by dropping but not endorsing NYC Councilmember Peter Vallone, Junior. Each will be rewarded by Crowley by either becoming Deputy Queens Borough President, go to work for the next NYC Mayor, City Comptroller, Public Advocate or be designated as the "official Queens County Democratic Party clubhouse" candidate for future public office.
