Joe Crowley is leaving another elected office behind.
The former New York congressman — who lost his longtime House seat to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in last year’s midterms — stepped down Tuesday evening as the chairman of the Queens Democratic Party, telling the Daily News, “It’s time to move on.”
“It’s the right choice for my life,” Crowley said in a phone interview. “I’m very proud of the work
I’ve done. I got a great career and I enjoyed it very, very much.”
The former Democratic boss — who served as a representative for the Queens-Bronx-spanning 14th District for 20 years and was considered a possible candidate for House speaker before his midterm defeat — said he’s resigning to dedicate himself wholeheartedly to his new job as a lobbyist for Washington, D.C., powerhouse Squire Patton Boggs.
“That’s certainly part of it,” Crowley said, adding he will split his time between the capital and New York.
So that election hearing for the chair at the Georgia Diner was a colossal waste of time. Except to boost up Crowley's ego and fragile sense of self-worth and entitlement
