The Other Unity Event Today

Speaking of unity, Freddy Ferrer and Mark Green are about to make their second joint campaign appearance ever.

Just hours after Andrew Cuomo held a “united for justice” rally with Charlie King, the presumably positive event is a boon for Green, who has come under increasing pressure to stop his “comparison campaign” against Cuomo.

Ferrer and Green will be in Jackson Heights endorsing City Councilman Hiram Monserrate for state senate against incumbent John Sabini. Ferrer practically swept up all the endorsements of the elected officials in that area when he ran for mayor. For Green, who has been contributing money to Monserrate, it’s a way to get a foothold in Cuomo’s home borough.

The last time Green and Ferrer held a joint appearance, there was a bomb scare. Can’t wait to see what happens today.
