Following Lavelle and Grannis

It looks like there will be at least for two more special elections this year, both for the state Assembly.

The two vacancies were created by the passing of Staten Island Assemblyman John Lavelle last night, and this morning’s nomination of Manhattan Assemblyman Pete Grannis as commissioner of the Department of Environmental Conservation. (Grannis interviewed for the comptroller position, so, in theory, that vacancy had also been possible for a couple of days.)

Dates for those elections haven’t been announced yet.

Grannis’ committee is the only one registered in his district with the state Board of Elections [link fixed]. There are two old committees, along with Lavelle’s, registered in his district.

Anyone know anything about who’s going to be running?
