Southeast Queens Backed Hochul in Big Numbers, While Northeast Queens Favored Zeldin

The Assembly Districts following this year’s redistricting (BOE)

Nov. 9, 2022 By Christian Murray

Governor Kathy Hochul brought in 63 percent of the vote in the borough of Queens Tuesday, a number that got a big boost due to the residents of southeast Queens.

Hochul racked up huge numbers in Assembly Districts 29, 31, 32 and 33—which include the southeast Queens neighborhoods of Springfield Gardens, Hollis, Rosedale, Jamaica, Cambria Heights, St. Albans, Bellerose and Queens Village.

For instance, in District 29, 22,280 voters cast their ballots for Hochul compared to 2,538 for Lee Zeldin. In District 31, 14,631 voted for Hochul compared to 2,947 for Zeldin. Similar margins were found in Districts 32—with 18,312 for Hochul and 2,176 for Zeldin– and District 33, with 21,632 for Hochul and 4,091 for Zeldin.

The western Queens districts also voted heavily in support of Hochul, although the numbers were not as lopsided. However, districts 34, 35, 36 and 37 still backed her by handsome margins.

However, within the western Queens assembly districts there were splits. In District 37, for instance, voters in Sunnyside and Long Island City overwhelmingly backed Hochul, compared to residents of the district who live in Ridgewood and Maspeth that went for Zeldin.

Zeldin generated support in pockets of Queens, winning five of the borough’s 18 assembly districts. He won District 23, which covers Howard Beach and a large portion of the Rockaways, by a sizeable margin. He garnered 19,190 votes, compared to Hochul’s 11,579.

He also won District 27, which covers College Point and Kew Gardens Hills, by a vote of 13,466 to 10,260. Meanwhile, District 40, which covers Flushing, also voted in favor of Zeldin by the slender margin of 7,819 to 7,301. Zeldin also won Districts 25 and 26, both in northeast Queens, by small margins.

Voters in much of central Queens favored Hochul, although the margins were significantly less than those in southeast Queens. Voters in District 28, which covers Forest Hills and Rego Park, backed Hochul by a margin of 18,636 votes to 15,853. She also won in Districts 30, 38, and 39.

Democrats need to break from the progressives, victims and minority only mentality and appeal to moderates.

I live in Woodside and the majority of us did not vote for Kathy H. The people that worked at election poll at PS11 were so unorganized My election district which was originally 46 is now 30 & AD is now 37.I never received my new voter card with this info ?
It caused chaos & I was ready to walk out . Anyway I plan to move out of here esp now that the city turned that hotel on 53St QB that became a shelter overnight which now houses those asylum migrants that do nothing but sit on sidewalk drink & hang out .I hate walking around there .

FU Hochul

Same here in Sunnyside. A lot of Dems I spoke to voted for Zeldin but apparently the numbers aren’t reflecting that. Strange.

Funs over

Voting system is rigged wake up. If you believe the voting system is accurate you probably are waiting by your chimney Christmas eve

Best of luck

Agreed on the disorganized polling place. But heartened by the news that you will finally move. Hasta la vista, Pat! Best of luck. Hope you move somewhere warm with no bike lanes to keep you up all night. Godspeed.

Op-ed: An urgent call for revising NY’s criminal justice reforms to protect public safety

Apr. 11, 2024 By Council Member Robert Holden

In 2019, the State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo embarked on a controversial overhaul of New York’s criminal justice system by enacting several laws, including cashless bail and sweeping changes to discovery laws. Simultaneously, the New York City Council passed laws that compounded these challenges, notably the elimination of punitive segregation in city jails and qualified immunity for police officers. These actions have collectively undermined public safety and constrained law enforcement effectiveness.
