May 26, 2020 By Allie Griffin

Candidates running for the Assembly District 37 seat will debate in a virtual forum tomorrow hosted by a handful of local community groups.

The candidates, activists Danielle Brecker and Mary Jobaida and incumbent Assembly Member Cathy Nolan, will answer questions from Queens residents and the community-based groups live on Zoom tomorrow from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The forum is hosted and moderated by Sunnyside Woodside Action Group, Woodside on the Move, Western Queens Community Land Trust, Sunnyside Moms, LIC Coalition, HPCA, and the Justice For All Coalition.

To participate and watch the forum, Queens residents must register on Eventbrite. The Zoom call-in details will be sent to everyone who registers before the forum begins.

Queen residents who wish to ask questions to the three candidates can enter them into the Zoom chat to submit them to the forum moderators. The moderators will pick several audience questions to ask at the end of the forum.

The three candidates will appear on the Democratic primary ballot for the position on June 23. The assembly district covers Long Island City, Sunnyside, Ridgewood and parts of Astoria and Maspeth.

3 men sought for armed robbery in East Elmhurst home invasion near LaGuardia Airport: NYPD

The NYPD is looking for three men who allegedly robbed an East Elmhurst man of tens of thousands of dollars during a home invasion early Monday morning.

Police from the 115th Precinct in Jackson Heights responded to a 911 call of an armed robbery at a townhouse located at 108-09 Ditmars Blvd. near 29th Avenue just south of LaGuardia Airport.
The victim had pulled up in front of his home just before 2 a.m. when he was approached by three suspects. One of them pulled out a firearm and forced him inside the townhouse where they stole around $30,000 in cash and a safe that contained an unspecified amount of jewelry, before exiting and driving off in a silver four-door SUV, police said.
