New York City - Bloomberg's Secret Mission to Satmar Community in State Senate Race
New York City - Mayor Bloomberg is reportedly sending Kevin Sheekey on a “secret mission” to convince the Satmar community to vote for Dan Squadron, who is running for the Democratic nomination for a State Senate seat in the the 25th State Senate District in Brooklyn and lower Manhattan, the race is against Democratic Sen. Marty Connor.
“The mayor wants his ‘deputy mayor for presidential aspirations’ to convince the Satmar to go with Squadron, and he’s suggesting the mayor’s office will reward the Satmar community with city grants if they go along with him,” contended one of the city’s most influential Democrats.
Bloomberg endorsed Squadron last month as an “independent voice” and a reformer who would shake up the Legislature.
Daniel lives in Carroll Gardens, where he attends Brooklyn Heights Synagogue.
