Green Party Candidate Lynne Serpe is running to fill departing Councilmember Peter Vallone Jr.’s seat in the 22nd Council District.

One candidate is ready to turn Astoria green.

In June, Lynne Serpe announced she would be running to fill departing Councilmember Peter Vallone Jr.’s seat in the 22nd Council District, serving Astoria, Long Island City and parts of Jackson Heights.

Serpe ran against Vallone for City Council in 2009. She is currently the project consultant for the Greening Libraries Initiative at Queens Library and an independent election administrator. She is also an active member of Two Coves Community Garden and the co-founder of Triple R Events: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Some of the ideas Serpe hopes to bring to Astoria if she gets elected are affordable housing and sustainable development, healthy schools and neighborhoods, clean energy and a green economy, and fair elections. Serpe has created a list called “22 Ideas for District 22” which can be found on her website at serpeforcouncil.org/22ideas.

“Clean air, clean water, clean energy and clean streets are not partisan issues – they affect the quality of life for all of us,” said Serpe.

Serpe will run against Democrat Costa Constantinides, Independent Party candidate Danielle De Stefano, Republican Daniel Peterson and Populist Party candidate Gerald Kann.
