PODCAST: We Talk to Leonardo Bullaro, Candidate for the 22nd District Council Seat


Feb. 28, 2021 By Christian Murray

Several candidates are running for the 22nd District council seat currently held by Costa Constantinides.

In our latest Podcast, we talk to Leonardo Bullaro who is vying for the seat about his platform.

Bullaro, an Astoria resident, is running as Democrat, one of five candidates who will be competing in the June primary.

We talk to Bullaro about his platform, such as how he believes Rikers Island should become a renewable energy hub—and why he is advocating for the city to build a better bus and bicycle network.

The 22nd district covers Astoria as well as sections of East Elmhurst, Woodside and Jackson Heights. Bullaro will be competing against Tiffany Cabán, Catherina Gioino, Evie Hantzopoulos and Nicholas Velkov in the primary.

The winner will face candidates Felicia Kalan, a Republican, and Edwin DeJesus, an independent, in the November election.

Constantinides is term limited.

I went to Mr Bullaro’s website but could not find a link to ask some questions before “joining”. We’re voters in Astoria and have a few questions. Thanks.

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.
