Melinda Katz has taken the position of Queens Borough President to unprecedented heights in under two years.
As Leader-in-Chief of Queens, her compassion and understanding of her office compliments necessary tough love that comes with the territory. Borough President Katz has made Community Boards and their dispositions a priority that hasn’t been evidenced for many years.
On a personal note, her enthusiasm in supporting and championing the revitalized, beautiful vision of what Southeast Queens should and can be has given us faith in the initiative called “Jamaica NOW,” which infuses a positive new look of the future of Southeast Queens. Melinda Katz has given Queens just what we needed: a contemporary approach to conducting the business of the “World’s Borough!”
Adrienne Adams has been the chair of Community Board 12 for three years, which covers Jamaica, South Jamaica, Rochdale Village, Hollis, St. Albans and Springfield Gardens, since 2012.
