The Flacks Report
Organization's 5th Civil Court District Boss-Controlled "Panel"---Missing Event---Washington Press Club---Condolences---Early Vote for Judicial Delegate


Organization's 5th Civil Court District Boss-Controlled "Panel"

The Regular Organization Party district leaders set up their own secret "screening panel" for a vacancy in the Manhattan 5th Civil Court District. The panel members' names were kept secret, but your correspondent stumbled upon a crumpled piece of paper in the street outside Marc Landis's home which had their names (see below). We'll have more about this return to boss-control at a later date.

What is highly unusual is that the panel's administrator is none other than the just-retired judge Karen Smith for whom the panel are to suggest a replacement. How she affects the panel is the big question. And what is all the more outrageous is that we understand that she has been doing most of the questioning of the applicants!

Here, in no particular order, are those secret panelists: Monalisa Morales, Marti Weithman, Carmen Ithier, Sherry Plotnick, Tom Capers, Lana Woods, Martha Rayner, Heydee Rosario, and Ana Pumarol.


Missing Event

A few have asked why the Chelsea "Reform" Dem. Club's fund-raiser last weekend wasn't listed in the Calendar of Selected (Manhattan) Events. Because they didn't want to be listed. We were told that the fund-raiser "was only for members and public officials." What?


Washington, D.C., Press Club

White House Correspondents Dinner: Obama & Meyers--enjoy! Link to:




For Manhattan-ites who may not have heard, Kings County Supreme Court Justice Gustin and Mrs. Reichbach recently lost their daughter Hope, age twenty-two. Notes of condolence may be sent to them at 148 Bond St., Brooklyn, N.Y. 11217.


Early Vote for Judicial Delegate

In Manhattan, the Three Parks Ind. Democrats had an early vote to select their candidates for delegate to the Party's judicial convention in September. Of ninety-four valid ballots cast, the vote was:

Alan Flacks………………..073
Theresa Canter…………...050
Milivoy Samurovich……….047
Corine Petty………………046

Alternate Delegates:
Elizabeth Kellner………….044
Marie Lunn………………..034
Bruce Markens……………028
Stephanie Tegnazian……..023

Now is the winter of our fiscal discontent
made glorious summer by this sun of Mario.
