Paul Vallone thinks part of Flushing is rife with home invasions
From Bayside Patch:
Flushing attorney Paul Vallone said he is focusing his City Council bid for Dan Halloran’s seat on improving northeast Queens’ quality of life, which encompasses everything from safety and education to assisting small businesses.
Vallone, who is the brother of Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., D-Astoria, said he has been eyeing Halloran’s seat for the past four years following his 2009 bid for the position.
“We never really stopped,” he said. “2013, for me, was always on the radar. And we are really excited about the prospects of this campaign. People know me and my family. There’s a lot identification with what we’re trying to do with the campaign. It’s rare when I get to someone’s door and they say, ‘Who are you?’”
The Clinton Democratic Club president said he would especially focus on safety issues after recently having found out that part of the district in Flushing that he would be covering has become number one in the city for home invasions.
Really? Where would that be? I think we would have heard about that...
You have to scratch your head over a council candidate that tries his best to destroy the property values of his potential constituents.
