Four Councilmembers Endorse Thompson
Wednesday, May 27, 2009
All four Democratic candidates for comptroller came to the steps of City Hall to endorse City Comptroller Bill Thompson for mayor. This year's Democratic comptroller contenders are Councilwoman Melinda Katz, Councilman David Yasky, Councilman David Weprin, and Councilman John Liu. Today's endorsement comes the day after Congressman Anthony Weiner took himself out of the running in the mayor's contest. Thompson still faces Queens Councilman Tony Avella in the September primary.
