Vickie Paladino represents District 19 of Northeast Queens, which includes Whitestone, College Point, Bayside, Little Neck, Douglaston, and parts of North Flushing. Elected in 2021 on a platform promising to deliver change and transparency to her district, Vickie works every single day to hold our leaders accountable and protect the interests of her constituents.
Vickie was born in Whitestone to working-class parents. Her father, a WWII veteran, passed away when she was only six years old, leaving her mother to raise her three sisters and one brother alone. She learned at an early age the value of family and community, especially during hard times. Before entering politics, she spent nearly 40 years raising a family and running two small businesses in the district, eventually becoming a renowned community activist, well known for standing up to the radical political elements who threaten to tear our city apart. Her constituents value her common sense and direct style, as well as her genuine commitment to the community she spent her entire life in.
Vickie’s legislative priorities emphasize public safety and support for the NYPD, the preservation of our quality of life, education, support for small business, and holding our government and representatives accountable.
