Candidate Comes Calling

Tom Allon at the 2012 New York City Puerto Rican Day Parade Allon campaign

Tom Allon, the president and chief executive officer of Manhattan Media, which owns Dan's Papers, is running for New York mayor on the Liberal Party line, and will have a fund-raiser tomorrow at 6 p.m. at 114 Ferry Road on North Haven, hosted by Kathie Russo, the producer of Alec Baldwin's WQXR radio program and the widow of the late monologist Spalding Gray.

Mr. Allon has made it a point to stress at his campaign appearances and material that he is the only non politician running for New York mayor in 2013.

Mr. Allon continues the summertime political trend of the South Fork money hunt about a month after Mitt Romney attended events in East Hampton and Southampton for his presidential campaign. President Obama's re-election effort will have events in Bridgehampton later this month at which vice-president Joe Biden is expected.

The party is open to the public. Those who would like to attend have been asked to respond to info@tomallonformayor.com.
