Greetings to all. As winter melts into spring, we need to focus on some very important issues. This year, we have across-the-board municipal elections. The policies pursued by the victors will shape our city for the next 4 years. We will elect a mayor, comptroller, public advocate, borough president and city council representatives and we must choose wisely. No more electing people who think we work for them and insult or ignore their constituents. Itโ€™s also time to reject candidates who like to pit one group or neighborhood against another. Times are tough, and we learned over the past year that while we donโ€™t always agree on issues, living as a community means respecting and helping each other and working together. Our next Town Meeting will take place virtually on Thursday, March 18 at 7:30pm. Please visit for the link and join us as we work to improve life in Maspeth and Middle Village.
