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 MemberĀ Donovan RichardsĀ 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 donatingā€”this campaign was built on your support.
ā€”Elizabeth Crowley

On the Issues

Safety


Driven by division and hatred, we have seen a surge in bias-related crimes in our city and country. As borough president, Elizabeth will act proactively to open dialogues amongst our communities and stem the rise of racism and bigotry in our great borough.

We must be clear and resolute: discrimination of any kind is unacceptable. In one of her first acts in office, Elizabeth will establish an anti-Semitism task force, similar to the ones created in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. She will work with religious leaders from all backgrounds to support efforts to promote interfaith dialogue and keep our communities safe.

As one of the most diverse urban areas in the world, we must celebrate immigration and our diversity as the pillars of what makes Queens great.
