The Riverdale Press reports, …
Benjamin for congress?
Though he stopped by to talk about abstinence, we couldn’t help but ask
former Assemblyman Michael Benjamin about rumblings that he may make a
run for congress in 2012. Would he run against Rep. Eliot Engel if Mr.
Engel’s district lines changed?
He replied that he was very comfortable in his non-political life at
the moment and that nothing was official.
He said he thought Mr. Engel was doing a good job, but then stopped
himself, and said, “I think the delegation could do more to rectify the
inequalities in our borough.”
Recently released Census stats show “appalling” levels of poverty in
the Bronx, he said, and more could be done to combat that.
OK. Then how about a run against Jose Serrano?
“That’s a possibility, too,” he said, adding again that for now, he’s
comfortable where he is.
