1. What is the most important issue in Queens you would address if elected?

As Queens Borough President I will pursue the needs for enough funding for police and fire protection, for libraries, schools and parks, and will make sure that Queens receives its fair share of City services. I will focus on all the quality of life issues that make a difference in our daily lives, such as reducing noise and environmental hazards in our communities. Above all, we need to ensure that safety prevails.


2. What other important issues would you address if elected?

We need to strive for more local jobs for our Queens residents. I will work for a borough-wide development plan that will encourage growth while maintaining neighborhood residential character. I have served the public most of my life and have the experience and vision to implement these programs. As your new Queens Borough President, I will add a New Start approach to this office and will re-evaluate existing programs and will seek to build up weak areas. I will consult with many Queens leaders of all parties and will find those with expertise who will help develop and implement programs as needed. Life’s challenges exist daily and we must be attuned to changing needs.


3. What makes you the best candidate for this office?

As Queens Borough President I will strive to end the one-party rule in this office. Forty-eight years is enough; it is time for a change. One-party rule breeds corruption and scandal. Long-time Queens residents remember the sewer scandal and the pothole scandal. I will use my knowledge, experience, and integrity to be an effective Borough President and I hope to have your vote. This is the borough of my home and yours. Let us preserve it well.
