Podcast: Costa Constantinides and His Run to Be Queens Borough President

June 1, 2020 Staff Report

Council Member Costa Constantinides, who represents Astoria and East Elmhurst, is running to be the next Queens Borough President.

We spoke to Constantinides early last week, before the national outrage following the death of George Floyd took hold. The focus of the discussion was largely about the looming budget problems New York City faces and what that will mean for the next borough president.

Constantinides is one of several candidates in the race. The other candidates are Elizabeth Crowley, Anthony Miranda, Donovan Richards and Dao Yin.
