Women for Comrie

comrie event 222 Women for ComrieHere’s part of the invitation for City Councilman Leroy Comrie’s April 19 fund-raiser, geared to female supporters. Comie is considered a likely candidate for Queens borough president.

Comrie is trying to close a fund-raising gap with the fund-raising leader in that race, Peter Vallone, Jr. (who got help from Michael Bloomberg). He’s also hoping to address a potential gender gap with Assemblywoman Audrey Pheffer, who may have a unique claim on the female primary vote.

(The last man to be elected Queens borough president was Donald Manes.)
