A well-recognized champion and advocate for public transportation, Daneek has spent a lifetime fighting for the families of Southeast Queens. His experience as a labor leader with a record of hard-fought victories, benefits and services delivered to working people make Daneek well-qualified to represent Southeast Queens in the City Council. As a labor and community activist Daneek knows the power of building coalitions to deliver for the community. Most recently, his efforts restored bus service, including the Q27 and Q42 serving Southeast Queens, to make it easier for residents to reach work, school, medical appointments and other activities.
