Counting Chickens?

One City Council candidate is looking beyond next Tuesday’s election and has started the process of filling out his staff.

Rory LancmanFormer Assemblyman Rory Lancman, who seeks to fill the seat of the term-limited James Gennaro in Council District 24, posted a job ad for a communications director on Oct. 17, three weeks before the Nov. 5 General Election.

“A progressive, Democratic nominee for City Council expects to have an opening,” the ad reads.

While Lancman is a favorite to win next week over Republican Alexander Blishteyn and Mujib Rahman, running on the Faith and Values line, he does still have to garner more votes than his opponents before he opens up his Council offices.

We appreciate Lancman’s gusto in wanting to hit the ground running on Jan. 1, but here at QConf, we hope that his search to staff his office doesn’t come back to haunt him.
