Gallagher Fund-Raising, Aiming Local

Councilman Dennis Gallagher is having a fund-raiser next week at Russo’s on the Bay featuring billionaire John Catsimatidis on the finance committee.

So, what is Gallagher running for? He’s term-limited and, he told me, he’s not interested in running for Congress.

“Washington isn’t the type of place where I would want to be an elected official," he told me. "In the city and on the state level you could accomplish a great deal more impact on people’s quality of life. For me, all politcs is local.”

Your speculation is welcome.
