Special Election Called for November
August 30th, 2010

As predicted, the special election to replace the late Thomas White on the City Council was called by Mayor Michael Bloomberg today for November 2.

Here is the release from the mayor’s office.

Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg today announced that a special non-partisan election will be held in the 28th Council District on November 2nd, the date of the regularly scheduled general election, to fill the vacancy created by the passing of Council Member Thomas White, Jr. Pursuant to the City Charter, the nomination of candidates in the election will be by independent nominating petition, rather than through a party primary.

The newly elected Council Member will serve until December 31, 2011. A second election to fill the remainder of the term will be held on Election Day in November 2011.

    Which party controls Congress? which the White House? The answer reveals your “balance of power” between the 2 branches of government which have elected officials. Contrary in order to popular belief, most of times in modern political history Congress and also the President have been in odds; that is, exactly the same political party has definitely not typically controlled the light House, the Senate, as well as House of Representatives. Only 10 times since 1945 have both branches of Congress plus the Presidency been controlled by the same party.
