To The Editor:
I was fortunate to attend this event last night with some friends to welcome Ms. Katz as our new Borough President. When she was accepting her oath, I thought to myself, “Now, the LeFrak City vicinity has a chance!”
There are at least two pressing matters that we have in our vicinity:
1) We need an afterschool community center. We have so many youths leaving in the confines, but they have nothing recreational to keep them busy.
2) We want a state-of-the-art police precinct erected where they are doing construction across the street from JC Penny. We need it!
Personally, I have known her since 2003; when she asked me to carry petitions for her when she was running for office in Forest Hills. Plus, when I had started an “after-school” aid program from my home, she gave me a contribution of $100 to start!
I know that Melinda Katz will be good for our historic Borough of Queens.
