Firing of Election Chief George Gonzalez Looks Bad for Bronx Dems

Party boss Carl Heastie pushed for his hiring in mid-August. Gonzalez's BOE gig was considered a plum $172,753-a-year patronage appointment.


  1. Bad..lets say..embarrasing..he was in essence caught trying to rig the Special Election Council race in Queens at the behest of Stanley Schlien..ugly...

If the current party leaders don't act -- the voters should.
