Uncontrolled development

Sensible developments with long term benefits, Public transportation, Flushing High School improvement, protection of small businesses near municipal Parking Lot 1.


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

Because I am the best and the brightest. We need a candidate with the highest integrity and moral rectitude, to do the right things and good things for the people of the district, Queens and NYC.

Without intelligence you won't be able to understand all the complexity of the needs and potential of the district you want to represent and lead.
