Dodge Landesman, Democratic Candidate For City Council, Endorses Republican Alex Zablocki For Public Advocate

Dodge Landesman, a registered Democrat, who is currently seeking the Democratic nomination to run for City Council from the 2nd Councilmanic District in New York City, announced on his Facebook Page on June 27, 2009 that he supports Republican Alex Zablocki for Public Advocate. Just before the endorsement, Alex Zablocki told Dodge Landesman that if elected, he is considering the formation of a Bi-Partisan Youth Commission to which he intends to appoint Dodge as head.

In his capacity as the elected State Representative of the Manhattan Libertarian Party to the State Committee of the Libertarian Party of New York, Mr. Landesman had suggested the Libertarians consider endorsing Democrat Norman Siegel for Public Advocate. Mr. Siegel did not seek the endorsement of the Libertarian Party at the New York City Libertarian Party Nominating Convention held on May 11, 2009 but Republican Alex Zablocki did seek the LP nomination, eventually losing out to Jim Lesczynski.
