City Councilman Robert Holden (D-Middle Village) is making good on a campaign promise to tackle quality of life issues affecting constituents in the southwest Queens neighborhoods in his district with the introduction of a series of bills last week.
Illegal conversions, abandoned houses and stalled construction projects were the topics of the legislative package Holden hopes will pass in the City Council. Holden said he has gained bipartisan support from elected official across the city.
“One of the major issues that I ran on was to alleviate quality of life concerns that constituents were facing in District 30.” Holden said. “Immediately after taking office, I began the legislative drafting process for several bills, and am excited to introduce them in the City Council, finally.”
