It’s confusing, but therein lies the fun of Yonkers favorite blood sport – politics. Evan Inlaw, Esq., is a candidate for Mayor of the City of Yonkers. Who knew? He is the designee of the Working Family Party. Evan inlaw is married to Tamika Inlaw, who, until but a few days ago presided over the Yonkers Chapter of the NAACP as its president. She advised she had to step down in order to afford Chuck Lesnick her endorsement for Mayor of Yonkers in the upcoming Democrat Primary of September 13, 2011. Mr Lesnick, is the president of the Yonkers City Council and is also engaged in a three way Democrat Primary challenge for the Democrat Party’s designation. Mr. Lesnick goes up against Bob Flower, and the Democrat Convention designee and present New York State Assemblyman Mike Spano.
The first thing that comes to mind is there love lost between Tamika and Evan? Very doubtful and one would hope their is nothing but bliss in the Inlaw household. Why has Evan been so quiet about his mayoral aspirations. Since there is hardly a prayer in Hell of ever going anywhere with only the Working Family Party in any general election, is Mr Inlaw simply a place holder for someone else? Yep, that is exactly what it is. And for whom will Mr Inlaw step aside? Once Mr Inlaw does step aside, will he await the promised opportunity to be designated a position on the bench? Fast track that man to a fine tailor for a fitting of black robes.
Yonkers continues to give and there are so many who are ready to take in the City of Hills where too little is on the level. The stomach continues to churn.
