The city conducted an exhaustive search and found the candidate that will act in the best interest of Noam Bramson aka the mayor who wants to jump ship for the county executive job. A message to Noam: the captain goes down with the ship.

Mr. Aragon - Good luck and watch your back of Noam Bramson. He is a no-good, do-nothing person who is incapable of sharing the stage with anyone. Do your job and do it well despite the whining and false protestations of child Bramson. Listen to the people of New Rochelle. Thanks.

I guess Noam finally found someone who will side with him and not speak out of tune (the actual truth).
