Kevin Peter Carroll talks about Marty Golden and Nicole Malliotakis.

Kevin Peter Carroll thinks it is very, very sad that no one ran against Malliotakis or Golden.
As District Leader, Kevin Peter Carroll’s job was to find people to run against these candidates. In November 2016, both went unchallenged.
Here’s the actual sad part….when great people like Jamie Kemmerer have stepped up to run, Kevin Peter Carroll didn’t back him. Carroll doesn’t get that the District Leader position is to support Democrats and advance the party. Malliotakis will not be up for re-election for another two years, so Kevin Peter Carroll mentioning a candidate for November 2018 is weird.
BTW, why does Kevin Peter Carroll keep mentioning his age? He’s the same age as everyone else in politics now and he didn’t do anything outstanding as a young district leader (remember Senator Golden and Malliotakis have been in office for awhile) so being young wasn’t an advantage to this area. Someone with connections and who is endearing to people needs to be the district leader so people will get excited about running for office here again.
