Assemblyman Vito Lopez remains the Brooklyn Democratic Party Chairman for now, but if he is forced to relinquish that post, a number of candidates including AssemblywomanAnnette Robinsonor District LeaderJo Anne Simonare being floated as replacements, according to Democratic sources. Robinson remains well liked among party leaders, and could forge a number of alliances across the borough, though it is unclear how seriously she wants the post. Another name often mentioned,Frank Seddio, would be interested in the county leader position, but if he continues to run for City Council to replace term-limited CouncilmanLew Fidlerhe would not be eligible for the job. Fidler, who party insiders once suggested could succeed Lopez, may not consider a run because of a recent bout of illness. A number of reform-minded candidates are expected to publicly call on Lopez to step down as party leader during a county meeting on Thursday.
