Dear Friends,
Together, with your help, we ran a very competitive race for Queens borough president. From neighborhood to neighborhood, we shared our ideas and our concerns, we put forward plans, and we renewed our commitment to move our communities forward. We worked hard, and I know our people and our borough will be better for it.
I wanted you to hear it from me first: while the Board of Elections has not officially called the race, and some districts are still getting tallied, the numbers to win are just not with us. I recently called Council Member Donovan Richards to congratulate him and to give him my full support as he becomes the Democratic nominee for Queens borough president.
From the onset of this campaign, I would have never imagined the year we have all gone through. But I remain hopeful and optimistic not just for myself, but for Queens and the country as a whole.
This was an incredible opportunity. Thank you for your encouragement, thank you for the many hours of volunteering, thank you for donating—this campaign was built on your support.
—Elizabeth Crowley
