2021 Elections: Who’s running for City Council in the 27th District?

There are 11 candidates running to represent District 27 in the City Council this year. The district — which includes the neighborhoods of Cambria Heights, Hollis, Jamaica, St. Albans, Queens Village, and Springfield Gardens — has been represented in the city’s legislative body by I. Daneek Miller since 2013. 

Like many other council members in Queens and across the city, Miller will be term-limited out of office this year. The winner of November’s general election will represent a district that is facing issues at the moment — such as youth development and lack of resources in southeast Queens — until 2023.
