Eleven council members in Queens will be forced to step down at the end of next year due to term limits.
Many candidates have already come forward looking to replace them, and will be competing in next June’s Democratic primaries for those spots.
In Queens, only four council members — Barry Grodenchik, Adrienne Adams, Robert Holden and Francisco Moya — are eligible for another term. They too will be facing challengers.
We plan to speak to as many candidates running for office in Queens as possible from now through to the primaries.
Today, we speak to Sunnyside resident Heajin ‘Hailie’ Kim who is running for the 26th District Council seat currently held by Jimmy Van Bramer.
The 26th Council district covers Sunnyside, Woodside, Long Island City and a portion of Astoria.
