Lopez out, Seddio in as county chairman

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Brooklyn Democrats have a new leader Thursday in the wake of state Assemblyman Vito Lopez' ousting.

Lopez left the job of county chairman under the cloud of a sexual harassment scandal in Albany.

The new man, voted in Wednesday night, is Frank Seddio, a former state Assemblyman and an ally of Lopez.

Seddio says his rule will be by consensus and will allow for dissenting opinions.

"If we have a difference of opinion and we can't agree on something, maybe down the road we can find another way to do it," he told NY1.
