The Black and Puerto Rican Legislators Annual Conference in Albany is getting started a little later tonight with an exclusive Chairman’s Reception, and the list of attendees will be worth keeping an eye on.
Bill Clinton is expected to be there, and en route right now are City Comptroller Bill Thompson and Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion.
The official schedule for Eliot Spitzer office isn’t out yet, although he is expected to attend.
Spitzer has cancelled a couple of get-togethers with legislators since that whole comptroller thing. And Errol Louis notes a potential cause for tension between him and this particular group of lawmakers: they supported white male legislator for comptroller over a black woman who was among the candidates backed by Spitzer.
