Winner #1: Helen Sears
In her almost eight years on the Council, she said she is most proud of opening a cancer clinic at Elmhurst Hospital Center and securing funding for a women's health clinic there.
But critics have accused the longtime Jackson Heights resident of ignoring the needs of immigrant constituents.
Sears rejected the criticism.
"The people that use the health services at Elmhurst Hospital are all immigrants," she said.
So no Americans utilize the services at Elmhurst Hospital Center? Since St. John's and Parkway closed, I'm sure many more do now. Didn't realize we had a hospital specifically dedicated to serve only immigrants and that only immigrants got cancer or needed women's health care. I feel much better about those tax hikes now.
NO THIRD TERM FOR YOU, GRANNY.
Winner #2: Danny Dromm
Dromm acknowledged he was arrested for prostitution in Levittown, L.I., when he was 16. But he denies he was ever a prostitute. He said he was making out with another man in a car when he was arrested in 1972. He told cops he was doing it for the money because he feared being outed as gay.
Yes! It's much better to have them think you are a gay prostitute than to have them think you are just gay...
Dromm pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was released. Then in 1988, he was arrested for drunken driving.
You sound like you'd fit right in at Crowley's Clubhouse.
Here's a NY1 interview that Dromm did about this issue.
