Ms. Khan, has some Decent ideas and Policies, has lived in the District for 20 Years and a Member of C.B.# 2.
Unlike MCC Who just Moved to Sunnyside less than a Year ago, Has No Policies, and is a Republican who’s Pretending to be Democratic?? Who Lived in Trump Towers for 20 years and Got an Endorsement from the NEW YORK POST, Today???
MCC’s been MIA all her Life from the 14th District!
At Least Ms. Khan came across Very Professional, Caring, Competent! Good Luck to you!!✌

Always judge people by how they treat people who are serving them. I ran across her while picking up my prescription at CVS on 41st Street. She was rude and mean to the cashier. If you’re this nasty to a worker then I don’t trust you to look out for the working class.

Kahn won’t get many votes, but may cut into AOCs portion.

Try running for local positions next time.
