Former mayoral candidate Mark Green is planning to endorse Manhattan Borough president candidate Julie Menin, the Community Board 1 chairwoman who says she’ll run for BP if Scott Stringer leaves the seat vacant in 2013. Green, who met Menin when he was president of Air America, also plans to host a fundraiser for her with lawyers Richard Emery and Gerald Lefcourt. “It was an easy decision to help Julie,” Green said, citing her managerial experience and personal values as assets in her campaign. “She asked and I’m happy to help in any way, except by starting a Menin super PAC. She’ll have to get someone wealthier and more politically corrupt to do that. You could look through her record and all, but to me of all the things she’s done, I was most impressed by how welcoming she was to the Islamic center and occupy wall street, when both were really hot hot topics,” he said. ”I’m proud to have the support of a great progressive leader like Mark Green, and proud of the momentum of our borough-wide campaign,” Menin said.
