Queens Borough President Candidates Say They'll Revamp The Role | November 25, 2019: The six candidates for Queens borough president want to convince voters that the largely ceremonial position can be more than just a figurehead.
At a candidate forum in Forest Hills on Saturday, moderated by reporters from Patch and the Queens Courier, the candidates made their case for how they would be a proactive borough president in a role that is typically more reactive.
"Too often we are waiting for the administration to come to us," City Council Member Donovan Richards said.
In response to a question on Queens Borough President Melinda Katz's record, former City Council Member Elizabeth Crowley was more blunt: "I don't think the borough president was bold enough in her vision for Queens," she said.
