Assemblyman Luis Sepulveda has only been a Bronx assemblyman since 2013. Yet, as Ken Lovett reported in the Daily News yesterday, Sepulveda is holding a fundraiser tomorrow for $1,000 a head, a good bit more than a state legislator seeks for re-election to the same post. So, Sepulveda may want a bigger political gig already or just protect himself from challenges, Lovett reports, adding that Sepulveda is no pal of borough “regulars” like Ruben Diaz, Jr., the borough president; Assemblyman Carl Heastie (now the Assembly speaker); or the county chairman, Assemblyman Marcos Crespo.
