It was a five-borough tour for Mayor Michael Bloomberg recently, as he opened campaign offices throughout the city for his reelection bid, including his office at 116-49 Queens Boulevard.
An all-star cast of Bloomberg supporters, including former New York City Mayor Ed Koch and Queens State Senator Frank Padavan, as well as many community leaders and volunteers, made the journey around the city on Saturday, March 28, helping Bloomberg open the respective offices.
“I am proud of what we have achieved together, but we aren’t done yet,” Mayor Bloomberg said. “We plan to build on our success – preserving neighborhood character; making the streets even safer, cleaner and greener; continuing to improve education for our kids, and creating jobs and economic opportunities.”
At his Queens stop on the tour, campaign volunteer Myrna Littlewort and Reverend Dr. Calvin Rice of New Jerusalem Baptist Church delivered the opening remarks and praised Bloomberg for his leadership during the past eight years. Bloomberg then spoke to the crowd of supporters and volunteers
“I believe that with independent, nonpartisan leadership, we can keep all five boroughs moving forward,” Bloomberg said. “Between now and November, I look forward to talking with New Yorkers about our plans. And, that’s what these campaign offices are all about: getting involved and staying involved. But I can’t do it alone – I need your help.”
Bloomberg’s Queens campaign office is located at 116-49 Queens Boulevard, between 77th and 78th Avenues. The office will be open on Mondays and Wednesdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and alternate Saturdays and Sundays beginning April 4, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
