Frank Seddio Planning City Council Bid

Frank Seddio is planning a bid to fill Lew Fidler’s City Council seat in Brooklyn’s 46th District.

“I was going to run in 2013 anyway, but I haven’t really begun anything until this week,” Mr. Seddio told The Politicker. “I will be putting together a committee pretty shortly, probably focusing on 2013, but if it becomes open, I’m definitely running.

Yesterday, Councilman Lew Fidler formally launched his campaign to fill the State Senate vacated by Carl Kruger, who resigned before pleading guilty to federal corruption charges.

“Frankly, and I’m not just being coy about it, my main concern right now is that Lew Fidler wins the State Senate seat and we don’t have a second Republican senator in our area of Brooklyn,” Mr. Seddio said. ”If he does win, his seat is probably going to open up in March.

Mr. Seddio is a lawyer, former judge and leader for the Democratic party in the 59th Assembly District who was a close ally of Mr. Kruger’s and is famous for having elaborate, annual displays of Christmas decorations at his home in Canarsie. Read More
