City Council candidate Linda Lee has been endorsed by a prominent lawmaker who has represented Fresh Meadows for years.
Assemblywoman Nily Rozic is backing Lee’s bid for District 23 in eastern Queens, including neighborhoods like Queens Village, Oakland Gardens, Little Neck, Hollis, Glen Oaks, Fresh Meadows, Douglaston and Bellerose.
“Linda’s decades of volunteerism and experience delivering social services has prepared her for this moment,” Rozic said, “and I’m excited to join her in the work ahead uplifting our neighbors across Queens.”
Lee, an 11-year Oakland Gardens resident and New York native, is a member of Community Board 11, the School Leadership Team (SLT) at her son’s school and is president and CEO of Korean Community Services (KCS) of Metropolitan New York.
She is the mother of two young children and the daughter of immigrant small business owners.
Rozic is the first elected official to endorse Lee’s candidacy.
Other candidates in the race include lawyer Steve Behar, DSA and WFP-endorsed activist Jaslin Kaur and CB2 district manager Debra Markell.
