PODCAST: We Talk to Marvin Jeffcoat, Republican Candidate for the 26th District Council Seat

Sept. 22, 2020 By Christian Murray

At the end of next year, 11 council members in Queens will be forced to step down due to term limits.

Dozens of candidates have already come forward looking to replace them, and will be competing in next June’s Democratic and Republican primaries.

We plan to speak to as many candidates running for office in Queens as possible from now through to the primaries.

Earlier this month, we spoke to Woodside resident Marvin Jeffcoat. He is running as a Republican for the 26th District Council seat currently held by Jimmy Van Bramer, who is term limited.

The 26th Council district covers Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City and a portion of Astoria.

Sen. Ramos delivers potential death blow to Mets owner’s dream of a casino alongside Citi Field

State Senator Jessica Ramos dealt a serious blow Tuesday to New York Mets owner Steve Cohen’s dream of building a massive casino and entertainment complex on the parking lot adjoining Citi Field where Shea Stadium once stood.

Ramos announced she would not support the $8 billion Metropolitan Park proposal, rejecting major pressure from her colleagues in government, including Queens Borough President Donovan Richards, and community leaders from nearby neighborhoods, who urged her to support permitted use legislation that would be required to build the complex on state-owned public parkland.
