According to two Republican sources, City Hall staffer Fred Kreizman is considering a run for state Senate on their line against Democrat Diane Savino, whose district includes parts of Brooklyn and Staten Island.
Kreizman works in the Community Assistance Unit and has previously taken some time off from work to help Republican state Senate candidate Maureen O’Connell on Long Island, who lost her special election race earlier this year to Democrat Craig Johnson.
A message left at Kreizman’s work number earlier this week was returned by an assistant who said he was out of the office. A message left on his work line was not returned.
One of the two Republican sources I spoke with said Kreizman is still contemplating whether to run, and that there are other Republican candidates who are looking to enter the race.
