Lynn Schulman is officially the Democratic nominee for Forest Hills, Rego Park and Kew Gardens.
“I am very grateful and thankful for the people who voted for me,” Schulman said. “But there is an election in November and I do have a Republican opponent, so I am going to start getting ready for that.”
Michael Conigliaro is the Republican running in District 29.
“I have a robust agenda in terms of my platform and I have more experience than Michael,” said Schulman. “I also have a large grassroots coalition that I will continue into the November election.
“I am taking a little bit of time for myself to regroup, it’s been a very long process,” she added. “I’m excited about the next steps and really working for the community.”
Schulman said key issues in the district are public safety and re-investing in public education. If elected, she also wants to work to expand the hospital capacity in Queens.
“I want to make any land use or zoning applications do a hospital capacity assessment,” Schulman said. “I would also support legislation to make sure that small businesses are able to negotiate their leases.”
Schulman was suported by Congressman Grace Meng.
“Lynn Schulman is a smart and dedicated leader who will work nonstop for her constituents,” Meng said.
