About

Queens County Politics covers the government and elected officials that serve the 2.3 million residents of Queens. This includes the office of the borough president and district attorney, seven congressional districts, 18 assembly districts, 15 city council districts, and seven state senators. We cover government as it pertains to Queens – be it education, development, business, social services or the arts. Content is curated, aggregated and original. Posts go up daily as written, Monday through Friday and distributed through social media, a growing subscription base and an interactive website. In short, we’re Queens’ best source for politics and government news.
