A crowd of elected officials and civic leaders gathered on the steps of Queens Borough Hall Sunday to show their support of U.S. Rep. Grace Meng, who was announcing the kick-off of her re-election campaign.
The festivities, however, were put on hold as everyone waited for County Leader, U.S. Rep. Joseph Crowley, who was on his way from Sunnyside’s “St. Pat’s For All” parade, but running just a bit behind.
Never one to miss an opportunity, Borough President Melinda Katz – well-known for her singing voice – turned to the crowd of supporters and led them all in a rendition of “God Bless America.”
Here at QConf, we hope the First Lady of Queens starts all of her events this way. Everyone loves a good sing-a-long.
