Marty Golden and a Hint of Bloomberg (Updated/Corrected)

Here’s an announcement of a fund-raiser for state Senator Marty Golden that just went out. It implies strongly, at least to me, that Michael Bloomberg will be in attendance.

Brooklyn- Mayor Michael Bloomberg, along with more than six hundred supporters, will join together in support of State Senator Marty Golden for a fundraiser hosted by the Friends of Marty Golden, on Wednesday, October 17, 2007 beginning at 6:00 p.m. to be held at Gargiulo’s, 2911 West 15th Street in Brooklyn. Members of the media are welcome.

 

The headline reads as follows: "MAYOR BLOOMBERG TO JOIN SENATOR GOLDEN FOR LARGE BROOKLYN FUNDRAISING EVENT."

I big deal, right? There had been speculation that this would be Golden’s chance to announce he’s running for mayor.

I emailed Bloomberg spokesman Stu Loeser to ask if the email was accurate, and whether Bloomberg was actually going to attend. The answer:

"Yes the email is accurate. No, he is not attending this event tonight."

 

UPDATE: Seems like I asked about the wrong night. The mayor won’t be attending tonight because the fund-raiser is on Wednesday. And he’ll be there.
