Astoria City Councilman Costa Constantinides is leaving office to lead the Variety Boys and Girls Club of Queens next week, he announced on Wednesday, March 31.
“For the past seven-plus years, I have woken up every day to make our community a better place. I gave my all each day and did my best to honor the confidence you had shown in me in making me your representative,” Constantinides said. “Today I announce a profoundly difficult and personal decision. I must resign from the New York City Council on April 9. I have been asked by the Variety Boys and Girls Club of Queens to become their new chief executive officer and have accepted this role.”
