Councilmember Mark Weprin now leads the City Council’s Queens delegation.

Councilmember Mark Weprin was unanimously elected Wednesday to chair the City Council’s Queens delegation, he announced in a statement.

“I look forward to advocating for much-needed funding for cultural groups and non-profit organizations in communities across Queens County,” he said. “To better serve our families in all 14 Council Districts across the borough, it is vital that the delegation continue to work as a united group.”

The lawmaker replaces former Councilmember Leroy Comrie, who held the role before being appointed deputy borough president.

Weprin was a top contender in the speaker’s race before stepping back to support his colleague Dan Garodnick, the Queens Democratic Party’s pick, who was not successful in his bid.

Elected in 2010, Weprin represents District 23, which includes Douglaston, Little Neck, Bayside and Queens Village.
