Elizabeth Crowley for Queens Borough President

I’m Elizabeth Crowley. Thank you for your interest in my campaign for Borough President.


Elizabeth Crowley stands for bold solutions that address some of Queens’ greatest needs and for our borough to finally get the resources that it deserves. That’s why Elizabeth is building the necessary support for more public transportation options, for policies that will make Queens carbon neutral and more storm resilient. She believes that Queens residents pay some of the highest taxes in New York, yet the borough receives the least in resources in return—that’s why Elizabeth is fighting for Queens to get its fair share.

As the first woman and only Democrat ever elected to the 30th New York Council District, Elizabeth served on the City Council for nine years and has never been afraid to speak truth to power. As Chair of the Fire & Criminal Justice Committee, Elizabeth fought back against the mayor, for three years in a row, to close 20 fire companies—and she won every time.

Elizabeth has a record of standing up for reforms across government to root out corruption. In a big win for good government, Elizabeth spearheaded the effort to investigate the unethical practices of the then-Queens Library head Thomas Galante, who spent over $300,000 in personal extravagances.

In the Council, Elizabeth engaged in a public battle with Mayor De Blasio and the Speaker of the City Council to reform the City’s discretionary funding practices; as a result, the Council adopted new rules that guaranteed all City Council districts are given equitable amounts of annual capital funding.

Elizabeth has always been a strong advocate for better transportation to improve quality of life and to inspire economic mobility. Following a feasibility study Elizabeth had commissioned while serving on the City Council, she founded Friends of the QNS, a nonprofit advocacy organization, which calls for the reactivation of the Lower Montauk Branch of the LIRR for local commuters. The QNS Rail would run from Jamaica to Long Island, serving nearly 7.7mm riders annually.

In 2017, Elizabeth co-founded the 21 in ’21 Initiative, a non-profit dedicated to empowering women with the tools and resources to run for local office.
