John Quaglione, State Senator Marty Golden’s deputy chief of staff, says he’s currently considering a run for City Council.
Home Reporter’s Denise Romano writes that the winner of a Republican/Conservative primary between Quaglione and his likely opponent Andy Sullivan would probably face Democrat Councilmember Vincent Gentile – who is expected to seek his third and final full term this fall.
For his part, Quaglione tells Home Reporter that he’s received a positive reaction from potential supporters, and is close to making a final decision as to whether he will run.
“I don’t have a decision yet, but am very close to one,” he told Romano. “We have been talking to some folks, friends, neighbors and people I have interacted with over the years in terms of fundraising and support with party leadership.”
The Golden and Gentile camps have had a long standing, if sometimes subdued, political rivalry going back at least to 2002- the year Golden defeated Gentile for his New York State Senate seat.
