Queens’ Rising Star?

NilyHere at QConf, we like to see hometown folk make good on a national stage.

Last week, it was announced that Assemblywoman Nily Rozic (D-Fresh Meadows) was the sole East Coast finalist selected by EMILY’s List to take part in the organization’s Gabrielle Giffords Rising Star awards.

One of the youngest members of the New York State Assembly, Rozic is facing off against competition from prominent women across the country, including the mayors of Dayton, Ohio and Compton, Calif., and state representatives from Nevada, Georgia, Colorado and Michigan.

The women’s organization backed Rozic’s 2012 campaign for State Assembly.

Voting is open on the EMILY’s List website,

Good luck, Assemblywoman Rozic!
