Yesterday brought speculation that the fiancee of the Queens man shot and killed by police before his wedding might run for the City Council seat left vacant with Councilman Thomas White’s death. At White’s funeral, Nicole Paultre Bell told the Daily News, “One thing that Tom White did tell me sitting in his office is the only way you can make change is getting involved, so I’ll keep that in mind.”

The News notes that while as many as a dozen people might be vying for the seat, Bell “brings name recognition and a heart-stopping personal story.” However, “She lives outside the district in Far Rockaway, and is still registered to vote at her mother’s house in Suffolk County. Under state election law, however, Bell would have to move into the district by Election Day – and get 899 signatures from registered voters on her nominating petitions.”
