PODCAST: We Talk to Tavo Bortoli, Candidate for the 26th District Council Seat

Tavo Bortoli, candidate for the 26th Council District

Aug. 25, 2020 By Christian Murray

Eleven council members in Queens will be forced to step down at the end of next year due to term limits.

Many candidates have already come forward looking to replace them, and will be competing in next June’s Democratic primaries for those spots.

In Queens, only four council members — Barry Grodenchik, Adrienne Adams, Robert Holden and Francisco Moya — are eligible for another term. They too will be facing challengers.

We plan to speak to as many candidates running for office in Queens as possible from now through to the primaries.

Today, we speak to Long Island City resident Tavo Bortoli who is running for the 26th District Council seat currently held by Jimmy Van Bramer.

The 26th Council district covers Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City and a portion of Astoria.

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.
