Williams, Lee elected co-chairs of Queens delegation to City Council


Council members Nantasha Williams and Linda Lee were elected to serve as co-chairs of the Queens delegation to the City Council by their colleagues on Friday. The duo will replace former Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz, who chaired the delegation from 2015 to 2021, when she was term-limited out of office.

The new leadership team will lead the delegation’s budget negotiations during the city’s discretionary budget process for Fiscal Year 2023. Under Koslowitz last year, the Queens delegation helped secure more than $20 million in funding for capital projects across the borough.
