A legislative breakfast for a Brooklyn-based educational group, Shema Kolainu, on August 5 will be something of a who’s who of New York politicians.
Amusingly, attendees will hear both “remarks” from State Senator Kevin Parker, and “greetings” from one of the Democrats looking to unseat him, Simcha Felder.
The chairman of the event is possible mayoral candidate John Catsimatidis, whose company, Gristedes, is the sponsor.
(Honorary chair status is given to Chuck Schumer and Hillary Clinton, which may help sell a few more tickets.)
The event is paying tribute to, among others, Comptroller Tom DiNapoli, the State Senate minority leader, Malcolm Smith, comptroller candidate and City Councilman David Weprin, and City Councilman Bill de Blasio, who is also a candidate for Brooklyn borough president.
