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 Member Donovan Richards 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 donating—this campaign was built on your support.
—Elizabeth Crowley

On the Issues

Veterans


If you make the sacrifice to serve in our nation’s armed forces, you deserve our gratitude but also the ability to live a healthy and prosperous life after you return. Sadly, our country does not do enough to help our veterans—and that’s why Elizabeth will prioritize helping folks who have given so much to our country in a tremendous act of sacrifice.

As borough president, Elizabeth pledges to:

  • Re-appoint a veteran’s affairs liaison in Queens Borough Hall;
  • Bring services TO our veterans if they cannot visit us in Borough Hall;
  • Ensure there is more set-aside affordable housing available to veterans;
  • Advocate for an increase in the discounts that veterans receive from the MTA;
  • And favorably weigh veteran status for appointment to our neighborhood community boards

Under a Crowley borough presidency, the voices of veterans will be heard.
