Crowley announces state Senate bid in newly drawn 17th District in western Queens


Former Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley launched her campaign for the state Senate Tuesday in an email message to her supporters. The candidate made it official after recently filing to run for the newly created 17th Senate District, which encompasses large parts of western Queens and part of Brooklyn.

The Glendale resident said she was running to ensure that “New York comes back stronger” from the pandemic.

“As a single mom who is raising her children in the district and one with the experience and proven track record, we need a fighter who will address affordability and build opportunity,” Crowley wrote.
