Well, here’s another previously term-limited politician who has decided his constituents can’t do without him: Staten Island borough president James Molinaro. He’ll seek the Republican nomination for a third term, but indicates he’s open to the Democrats as well. City councilmember James Oddo has been thinking of running for the job, but has also said he won’t challenge Molinaro if he goes for it. Molinaro got the gig when Guy Molinari was term-limited out; the former beep is now supporting a lawsuit to bring back the term limits voted out by the city council. Current beep Molinaro previously expressed his support for the removal of term limits.
