Today I attended 2 political events in Queens: First, the installation of officer of the JFK Regular Democratic Club (I am an officer), later, my friend Elizabeth Crowley's inauguration to the City Council. They were both a who's who of NY politics, featuring Senator Chuck Schumer, Congress members Anthony Weiner and Carolyn Maloney, and over a dozen City Council members and Assemblymen and women.
My family came to the first event, and that was fun- and it was with great pride, admiration and excitement that I watched Elizabeth get sworn in by Christine Quinn.
Yet the day was bittersweet, as my own immediate political future has been made quite uncertain by the recent development of Mark Weprin announcing his intention to run for the seat I'm currently running for.
I'm trying to take things day by day, and trust in faith and the universe, but I will admit, it has been very hard, as this is something my family, friends and I have worked very hard for over the last year. Time will tell. In the meantime, I'm working hard to help out my friends in politics and working hard to build my marketing firm theKbuzz. We might even help bring Facebook to fellow politicians.
