The men and women in the FDNY will never forget when she led the fight against City Hall when the mayor tried to close twenty firehouses throughout the City. She has always been there for us, and we are proud to be there for her by endorsing her bid for Queens borough president.
That’s why, on this Earth Day, I’m proposing the Queens Green Promise: a plan to revamp our environmental infrastructure with a focus on green energy for the challenges of the twenty-first century, all while reinvigorating our local economy.
Joined by supporters, including her two sons, Dennis and Owen, and former Congresswoman Elizabeth Holtzman, Crowley declared her candidacy on the steps of the Queens Public Library in Flushing on Wednesday, April 14.
Her intentions have been clear for weeks, but on Wednesday, she proclaimed them publicly at a campaign kickoff event in Flushing. “I am proud to stand with you today,” she said before a small crowd of supporters, “and announce my candidacy for Queens borough president.”
Crowley has focused her campaign on improving life for public school students and their families. She has promoted the safe and stable reopening of buildings and continued to call on the city to address the overcrowding that has plagued the borough for generations.
