City Hall News ranks powerful politicos

THE BRONX - Annabelle Palma (D-District 18) is the most powerful City Council member in the Bronx, according to a list ranked by City Hall News that came out last month.

Palma was third on a list of 50 city representatives. The bi-monthly political paper based its choices on a formula that considered five factors: the number of bills the council member has passed, the number of bills they've introduced, the number of committee hearings they've chaired this year, how significant those committees are and the amount of member item money they've scored.
