District 27

Nantasha Williams

Jamaica, South Jamaica, Springfield Gardens (North)-Rochdale Village, St. Albans, Hollis, Queens Village, Cambria Heights, Laurelton, Jamaica

New York City Council Member Nantasha Williams is the representative for Council District 27 in Southeast Queens and its communities of Cambria Heights, Hollis, Jamaica, St. Albans, Queens Village, Addisleigh Park, and Springfield Gardens.

Nantasha is a community leader, social justice advocate, and political organizer committed to affecting real change in her community. Creating new economic opportunities, youth development, housing, and protecting our seniors are her top priorities. It is her mission to serve the residents of her hometown, Southeast Queens, New York and continue its rich legacy into the future. Elected to the New York City Council in 2021 by a significant margin, Nantasha has worked tirelessly to deliver for the community that raised her. During her first year in the City Council, Nantasha helped pass historic legislation requiring many ads for jobs in the nation’s most populous city to include salary ranges, in the name of giving job applicants — particularly women and people of color — a better shot at fair pay. 

During her second year in office, Nantasha was able to secure almost $9 million in major investments in the New York City budget for her district including $3.8 million to rebuild a local park neighboring PS.176Q, $2.8 million for crucial resilience upgrades in the Cambria Heights Library, and $2.75 million for the reconstruction and revitalization of a playground that was heavily damaged during Hurricane Ida.
