Many candidates will be running in next June’s Democratic primary for the 29th District Council seat currently held by Karen Koslowitz.

Today, we speak to Aleda Gagarin who is one of more than 10 candidates vying for the seat that covers Forest Hills, Rego Park, Kew Gardens and Richmond Hill.

The city council will be under significant change in 2022 due to term limits.

Eleven council members in Queens–including Koslowitz–will be forced to step down at the end of next year due to term limits. Only Barry Grodenchik, Adrienne Adams, Robert Holden and Francisco Moya — are eligible for another term.

Grodenchik announced earlier this month that he is not seeking reelection.

We plan to speak to as many candidates running for office in Queens as possible from now through to the primaries. For a list of candidates, click here.

I was interested in Ms. Gagarin’s talk and agree with most of what she said, but I
think she is wrong when she lumps de Blasio and Cuomo together. Obviously she has not listened to Cuomo’s covid updates. He had them daily when things were at the blackest (April – July). He now has them weekly or more. He has told the facts, unlike Trump, and has begged people to wear masks, social distance, etc. He is the reason why we became one of the best states (infection-wise) from when we were the epicenter. The fact that she doesn’t realize that
makes me wonder why she doesn’t.
