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.
