Local leaders gather for Queens Civic Congress Legislative Reception

Several Queens civic leaders and elected officials gathered to discuss major issues in the city, state and country as a whole on Dec. 3 at the Douglaston Club. In addition to these discussions, three women — Queens Civic Congress Vice Presidents Rene Hill, Denise Winters and Elaine Young — were recognized by the Queens Civic Congress for their outstanding work in civics.

“It’s a pleasure to have everyone here as we acknowledge today, the remarkable contributions of women in civic leadership at the Queens Civic Congress,” Queens Civic Congress President Warren Schreiber said. “As we move forward, the Queens Civic Congress is resolute in facing the multitude of challenges before us. These include the ‘City of Yes,’ initiative, which threatens our single and dual family homes and residential communities. Also congestion pricing that unfairly targets commuters in all boroughs. We must embrace our collective duty to shape our future. Our responsibilities today will forge the path for generations to come.”
