Sunnyside Local Seeks Borough President Job

June 11, 2009 Staff Report

Marc Leavitt, a Sunnyside local, has lofty plans to wrest the Queens Borough Council presidency away from Helen Marshall (D) this year.

Leavitt (D), an attorney who has just set up his campaign office in Woodside, has to collect about 15,000 signatures before he can get on the ballot and force Marshall into a Sept. 15 primary.

If elected, Leavitt told the Queens Chronicle that he would strive to get Queens the recognition it deserves. “I think Queens is the multicultural heart of the greatest city in the world and we don’t get enough credit for it,” he said. “We need stronger leadership to show how great our borough is to the outside world and among ourselves.”
