Erik Dilan’s Congressional Campaign Moves Forward

Is Brooklyn Councilman Erik Dilan’s potential primary challenge against Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez starting to take off the ground?

From the latest fundraising invitation from Michael Olmeda, a political consultant who worked as the campaign manager for Councilman Erik Dilan’s Chief of Staff Rafael Espinal’s in an Assembly special election last summer, it sure looks like it.

“I am once again reaching out to you to help support another of our young and progressive candidates for election,” Mr. Olmeda wrote in an email to potential donors this evening, forwarded to The Politicker by a friendly reader.

“This one, I have known for sometime now. He is already an Elected Official and is seeking higher office,” he continued. “He aims to replace an incumbent Congresswoman that has almost 20 years in service and has only faced another candidate once during that time. She is ripe for the picking. We will win this one.”

Some suspect Mr. Dilan’s potential campaign could be a power-play between Brooklyn’s Democratic leader, Assemblyman Vito Lopez, a close ally of Mr. Dilan, and Ms. Velázquez, a staunch political rival. However, Mr. Olmeda’s direct language suggests the campaign is becoming noticeably more tangible.

Dear Friends,

I am once again reaching out to you to help support another of our young and progressive candidates for election.
This one, I have known for sometime now. He is already an Elected Official and is seeking higher office. He aims to replace an incumbent Congresswoman that has almost 20 years in service and has only faced another candidate once during that time. She is ripe for the picking. We will win this one.

Erik Dilan is a great legislator who has brought millions of dollars and countless services to his district. It is time for change, it is time for the young and vibrant leaders to work these Washington movers and shakers.

Please write a check for my good friend Erik. He is on a great path, and you can help him to continue the journey. Thank you for your support.

As you may recall, you have helped me elect several young people to office in recent years, the likes of Assemblywoman Grace Meng; Councilwoman Jullisa Ferreras, and most recently Assemblyman Rafael Espinal. In all we have backed winners, lets keep this momentum all the way to Congress.

I look forward to your donation, and hope to see you next Tuesday.

Respectfully,

Michael Olmeda

    As A Matter Of Fact, Nydia Velasquez Has Created Housing, Funded The NYCHA Housing For Many Year’s, While Mr. Dilan Has Supported Mayor Bloombito Defunding From Just About Every Agency There is Left In NYC. He Really Must Be Desperate That He Has Gone To The Lowest Rung Of The Abyss To Challenge One Of The Greatest Hispanic Female Congressional Icon’s That Ever Came To The U.S. Congress…..

    How Will You Explain To The Bushwick Constituent’s That Are Not Vito Follower’s Nor Of Either Of The Dilan’s, That One Of Mr. Dilan’s Favorite Supporter’s Has The Biggest Brooklyn Corruption Cloud Over His head And Mr. Dilan Has Stood By And Accepted Funding As Well As GOTV Support From These Act’s…!
    Fisher also approved hefty raises for others, including Angela Battaglia, a Ridgewood executive who is Lopez’s girlfriend and a member of the City Planning Commission. No action was taken against Battaglia, who took in $343,000 in 2009, up from $198,000 in 2008.
