Last Night the Ben Franklin Democratic Club Dinner was held. In TRUE DEMOCRACY this reporter was told by 81st A.D. Female District Leader, and Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz's Chief of Staff Randi Martos not to attend the club dinner even though other reporters were welcome to attend.
It is the loss of those who were honored not to get the publicity they would have gotten here and in my column in the Bronx Voice.
As State Comptroller Tom di Napoli said at a recent Ben Franklin club meeting 'that political clubs are loosing the power they once had as has been evidenced by the past presidential election'. Come to think of it, the room that night was not as crowded as it has been in the past.
I can only guess that this year's Ben Franklin dinner was not as good as last year's dinner, could that be the reason why I was kept away?
