Bronx native Leonardo Coello set to challenge Landon Dais for 77th District Assembly seat

Leonardo Coello is a familiar face to anyone who has attended a community board, precinct council or political meeting in the Bronx. As Bronx borough director for the mayor’s office, he has spent a year and a half as the face of the mayor at events and during emergencies. 

And he is now running — by popular demand, he says — against incumbent Landon Dais for the 77th district State Assembly seat.
