Several candidates are running to represent the 22nd Council District—a position that was recently occupied by Costa Constantinides.

In our latest Podcast, we talk to Catherina Gioino who is vying for the seat.

Gioino, a life-long Astoria resident and a freelance reporter, will be competing in the Democratic primary on June 22 to represent the district that covers Astoria as well as sections of East Elmhurst, Woodside and Jackson Heights.

We talk to Gioino about her platform, such as how she would advocate for more greenspace, pedestrian plazas and a better bike lane network.

She will be competing in the primary against Leonardo Bullaro, Tiffany Cabán, John Ciafone, Evie Hantzopoulos and Nicholas Velkov.

There are two other candidates running to be represent the district—Edwin DeJesus and Felicia Kalan. They are not running as Democrats and will therefore not be in the primary. They will be participating in the November general election.

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.
