At the end of next year, 11 council members in Queens will be forced to step down due to term limits.
Dozens of candidates have already come forward looking to replace them, and will be competing in next June’s Democratic and Republican primaries.
We plan to speak to as many candidates running for office in Queens as possible from now through to the primaries.
Earlier this month, we spoke to Woodside resident Marvin Jeffcoat. He is running as a Republican for the 26th District Council seat currently held by Jimmy Van Bramer, who is term limited.
The 26th Council district covers Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City and a portion of Astoria.
