S.I. Democrats Pick Titone for Lavelle's Seat


Here are City Council members James Oddo, a Republican, and Michael McMahon, a Democrat, waiting in Speaker Christine Quinn’s office and discussing the special election to fill the seat of late Assembly member John Lavelle.

McMahon said that after a few rounds of balloting last night, the Democrats settled on attorney Matthew Titone to be their candidate. Titone beat out Lavelle’s son, John Daniel, Robert Olivari, and Kelvin Alexander.
