Jim from the 44th enters the 40th City Council Race

Well look who has entered the 40th City Council Race. Assemblyman Jim Brennan. No he is not running but he has made some waves in the race.

This is an email sent out to all the potential candidates in the race:

Assembly member James Brennan (44th AD) is concerned about the short notice that was given for the special election in the 40th CD called last Friday by Mayor Bloomberg.

The State Asssembly is printing a bill to extend petitioning for the special election to fill the vacancy in the 40th Council District. The bill would extend the petition period by one week and cut the number of signatures required by half (to 500).

We wiill keep you informed about this legislation.

Why or how will this affect the race?

Is this move have any relation to him running for City Comptroller?
