Micah Kellner has been a strong presence on this Island and has proven he fights for and watches out for Roosevelt Island as does City Council Member Jessica Lappin (D - 5). A representative of Ms. Lappin's office confirmed that she "hasn't formally taken a position on the DA race."

The democratic primary this coming September 15th has two very important races including Manhattan District Attorney and City Comptroller. This morning former Judge Leslie Crocker Snyder greeted commuters outside the Roosevelt Island subway station alongside New York State Assembly Member Micah Kellner (D - 65) who is endorsing the former judge and who strongly supports her candidacy.
Judge Snyder is one of three candidates to replace long time DA Robert Morgenthau and whoever wins the primary has a strong chance of keeping that non-partisan position in Democratic hands. Judge Snyder's opponents in the pprimary include Cy Vance and Richard Aborn. Morgenthau has publicly endorsed Cy Vance. A profile of Judge Snyder's career can be found on the New York Times here.
