Councilman Dinowitz?

Over at the Riverdale Press (not 0n-line) Buddy Stein reports that Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz is mulling over the idea of running for City Council in 2009. Why trade a job-for-life up in Albany for one with significant less job security (Council members can only serve two 4-year terms)?
Well, because the pay is $33,000 higher and the commute to City Hall is considerably less onerous than frequent trips up to the state capital. He'd probably be a shoo-in for the post, being the obvious successor to Oliver Koppell, whose old Assembly seat he now occupies.
But Dinowitz also tells the Press that he's happy with his appointment to the Aging Committee and he just had the satisfaction of seeing his anti-sex trafficking bill signed into law.
In 2017, when he'd be tossed out of the Council, Dinowitz would be 62. He said he's not predicting an "early retirement."
