“Queens Pols Call for End to City Workers Vax Mandate,” Queens Daily Eagle – September 9, 2022

“More than a dozen New Yorkers and elected officials gathered on the steps of City Hall on Friday morning to demand the city eliminate its vaccine mandate for municipal workers and rehire the over 1,000 who were fired for not complying earlier this year. The rally came ahead of a City Council hearing on mounting municipal vacancies.

Led by the Common Sense Caucus — which includes Queens Councilmembers Robert Holden, Vickie Paladino and Joann Ariola — speakers from different backgrounds criticized vaccine mandates, citing the changing nature of COVID-19 and the city and state’s easing of pandemic protections.”

“Bayside to Get More Speed Cameras as Program Goes 24/7, Pol Says,” Bayside-Douglaston Patch – August 1, 2022

“Councilwoman Vickie Paladino, though, called the move ‘not such great news.’

‘They are going to go 24/7 365 days a year,’ she said of the speed cameras in a video message to constituents. ‘That doesn’t make me happy.’

Even more alarming to Paladino, is the renewal of the program through 2025, meaning the city will continue its far-reaching efforts to enforce speed limits in school zones in-part by adding more speed cameras.

‘To make matters worse, Governor Hochul along with our commissioner DOT has voted on increasing in the five boroughs speed cameras up to 2,000 more,’ said Paladino. ‘You can bet that District 19 will be getting some of those 2,000 speed cameras.’ “

Jim Corcoran, affectionately known as “Big Jim,” will be the new namesake of Corbett Road and 217th Street, near where he reportedly lived for years.

To be known as ‘James “Big Jim” Corcoran Way,’ the street is one of more than 70 ceremonial ‘co-namings’ across the five boroughs approved by the City Council last week.

“Editorial: Voting is for Citizens Only,” Queens Chronicle – June 30, 2022

“Somehow a majority of the last City Council thought it could ignore the two sections of the state Constitution, as well as the Election Law and Home Rule Law, that say only citizens may vote in New York. The members who backed the illegal law passed it in a blatant effort to pander to immigrants and their advocates and drive the city government even further left than it already is.

Luckily some patriots then stood up — Queens City Councilmembers Bob Holden, Joann Ariola and Vickie Paladino, several lawmakers from other boroughs, a couple of Republican Party organizations and some naturalized citizens — and sued to block the law. Wisely filing the case on Staten Island, they got what they wanted, the judge declaring the law “illegal, null and void” due to its violations of the state Constitution and law.”

“A Clean Slate or a Public Safety Hazard?” Queens Chronicle – May 26, 2022

“Councilwoman Vickie Paladino (R-Whitestone) thinks the bill is an attack on public safety and there are better ways to provide second chances that balance accountability with compassion.

‘Law-abiding citizens, such as employers and neighbors, have an absolute right to know if an individual has serious criminal convictions, especially for violent crimes,’ Paladino said to the Chronicle. ‘While I do believe in second chances and generally support programs which can help ease integration into society for those with past convictions, the answer is most definitely NOT to arbitrarily erase criminal records wholesale as this bill intends to do.’”

“Cops Not Solidarity, Bayside Leader Says After Brooklyn Subway Attack,” Patch Media – 4/13/22

‘It’s long past time to reign in the chaos — and not with half-measures and progressive wishcasting,’ wrote Bayside City Council Member Vickie Paladino several hours after a gas-masked shooter detonated smoke grenades and fired at least 33 shots into an N train car — an incident that she later described as a ‘terror attack.’

The day after the attack, Paladino clapped back against so-called ‘progressive wishcasting’ again, after Public Advocate Jumanee Williams said that the city must move forward in solidarity.

‘What does that even mean?’ Paladino wrote. ‘This is the completely out-of-touch progressive BS that turned NYC into a total basket case. No solutions, just abstractions.’

The Bayside leader went on to reject the notion that solidarity is important in response to Tuesday’s attack.

‘Solidarity’ isn’t going to keep our subway safe — cops and tough prosecutors are. And nobody laying on a bloody subway platform with a bullet in their shoulder cares about your ‘solidarity’. We need real ACTION. Not progressive bromides,’ she wrote.'”

Paladino, who has been forthcoming about her tough-on-crime approach and unwavering support of the NYPD, took the opportunity to push for increased personnel in the precinct. “There are only 100 police officers with the 111th Precinct,” she said. “That’s not how it should be.” At the same time, she called the shooting “an isolated incident.”

“Queens Councilwoman Paladino Calls on Mayor to Lift COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate for Civil Servants,” QNS – 3/29/22

“Queens Councilwoman Vickie Paladino hosted a large gathering of civil servants in front of the Unisphere in Flushing Meadows Corona Park on Tuesday, March 29, to call upon Mayor Adams to lift the vaccine mandates in their departments and allow them to return to their jobs.

Those in attendance included teachers, sanitation workers, hospital and EMS workers and members of the NYPD, FDNY and MTA, among others.

Paladino stressed the importance of these workers, with many of them having worked throughout the height of the pandemic when most people stayed home.

“These people are the backbone of New York City,” Paladino said, adding that she would love to see each civil servant be able to return to work.

Paladino emphasized that the press conference was not a slight toward Adams but rather to show him just how big of an impact his vaccine mandates on civil servants have on them and the city as a whole.

“I’m calling upon [Mayor Adams] to rise up and give these people back their jobs,” Paladino said. “These people are the heartbeat of New York City and we slowly watched the heartbeat stop over the last two years.”

But Paladino does not want lifting vaccine mandates to stop with civil servants, saying she believes all mandates in the city need to be rolled back and the unvaccinated workers rehired.”

“NYC workers fired over vax mandate rally for jobs, backpay: ‘Our bodies are sacred,'” 1010 WINS – 3/29/22

“Mayor Adams, you can come out a hero today,” said Queens Council Member Vickie Paladino, who organized the rally at the Unisphere attended by hundreds of demonstrators on a sunny, chilly morning.

Addressing the crowd of former city workers, Paladino said “everyday people” like them rose to the occasion during the height of the pandemic only to get booted when they wouldn’t get vaccinated.

“You guys showed up each and every day for work when it was at its worst. And how were you rewarded? You were rewarded with a pink slip,” Paladino said.

Paladino and others at the rally, including Brooklyn Council Member Inna Vernikov, said they applaud the mayor for allowing unvaccinated pro athletes and performers to work but they now want it applied universally.

“Douglaston-Little Neck JMart is official,” Queens Chronicle – 3/24/22

“That, it seems, is going to change: Councilwoman Vickie Paladino (R-Whitestone) announced last Thursday afternoon that JMart is moving forward with its plan to open a location in the old Stop & Shop storefront.

‘I am very pleased with what has come out of our discussion with the J Mart owners, and I look forward to a fruitful, transparent, and collaborative working relationship with them throughout this whole process,’ Paladino said in a prepared statement. ‘As I always say, I am committed to ensuring that my constituents’ voice is heard in each and every endeavor all across my District.’

Paladino’s press release notes that JMart developers are not proceeding with an earlier plan to add a second story with a restaurant, an underground parking garage and expand the front of the building. Since that is no longer being pursued, the project will continue as of right.

According to Nicole Kiprilov, Paladino’s chief of staff, the councilwoman was planning to have a “meet and greet” with JMart officials and community leaders in hopes of establishing “a productive and transparent relationship” between the two on Wednesday.”
