James Gennaro sworn in as City Council Member for Queens’ 24th Council District


James Gennaro was sworn in as the City Council member for Queens’ 24th Council District on Thursday, Feb. 18, after the special election results were certified by the NYC Board of Elections earlier this week. 

Following the certification, City Clerk Michael McSweeney administered the Oath of Office via Zoom to Gennaro, while his wife and children were by his side. Gennaro won the Feb. 2 special election, receiving 60.1 percent of the vote in an eight-candidate field to fill the seat left vacant by former Councilman Rory Lancman, who took a job in the Cuomo administration last year.
