Dennis Saffran, Nassau County Attorney, Chief of Appellate Litigation, spoke at the crowded May 2nd Club meeting. He is running for the New York City Council seat from Northeast Queens now held by Dan Halloran (R-District 19), who has recently been indicted on federal corruption charges. He nearly won this Council seat in 2001 – losing to Tony Avella by just 400 out of 35,000 votes. Mr. Saffran said: “I’m running again this year… to restore to our communities and to the Republican Party in our area the tradition of integrity and honesty in government set for many years by Senator Frank Padavan and former Councilman Mike Abel.”
Alex Blishteyn, Republican candidate for City Council District 24, recieved the unanimous endorsement of the Queens Village Republican Club by a floor vote at the April General Club Meeting. He was already officially endorsed by the Queens County Republican Party. Our Club meeting on Thursday evening May 2, was redirected to the small center room of the Trattoria Lucia Restaurant due to a party (with a small “P”) in our regular meeting room. In a crowded but energized atmosphere, we heard from our local Northeastern Queens Republican City Council candidates as we mobilized for action to help them win City Council seats in the months ahead. We determined to unite behind our candidates.
Please come show your support for our City Council candidate!
