Bronx Dems pick John Zaccaro Jr. as nominee for open Assembly District 80 race


A vacancy committee for the Bronx Democratic Party tabbed John Zaccaro Jr., chief of staff to New York City Councilmember Rafael Salamanca Jr., as its nominee for the New York State Assembly District 80 seat — set to be vacated by Nathalia Fernandez following her state Senate primary victory last month.

Zaccaro will face Republican nominee Phyllis Nastasio, a Community Board 11 member, in the Nov. 8 general election for the district that spans the neighborhoods of Morris Park, Pelham Gardens and Allerton.
