The three Democratic candidates vying to replace outgoing City Councilman David Weprin (D-Hollis) remained congenial during the TimesLedger Newspaper’s Council debates last Thursday as they chatted on how they would improve health, education and race relations if elected.
State Assemblyman Mark Weprin (D-Little Neck) and community activists Bob Friedrich and Swaranjit Singh squared off during the hour-long discussion, which was hosted by the TimesLedger’s parent group, the Community Newspaper Group. On several questions the three came to an agreement on some of the solutions for tackling the issues in the 23rd Council District, which covers Hollis, Queens Village, Little Neck, Douglaston, Bayside, Bellerose, Floral Park, Glen Oaks, New Hyde Park and Fresh Meadows.
Watch the debate in its entirety here and read our coverage of the event later in the week.
