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.
