Craig Caruana to challenge Crowley for Council

From the Queens Chronicle:

Middle Village native Craig Caruana wants the Republican Party to take back the 30th District City Council seat and said he’s the man for the job when he announced his candidacy in front of the Little League clubhouse in Glendale on Monday.

“We are lacking leadership in this district,” Caruana said in front of family, friends and supporters. “What we need is someone who will take responsibility for what happens in Queens.”

Caruana also addressed what he called missteps current Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Middle Village) made throughout her term.

“Property taxes have gone up 11 times over the past 10 years,” Caruana said. “And when you ask Councilwoman Crowley about it, she says it’s complicated. Water rates have also increased, and yet it was met by a stunning silence of indifference from the councilwoman.”

Caruana went on to criticize the councilwoman for bringing in the least amount of discretionary funding in the entire borough.

“What does the councilwoman say about the lack of money coming into this district?” Caruana asked. “She complains that the 30th District doesn’t receive funds because the speaker is mean and doesn’t like her. These are all excuses. We need someone who doesn’t complain about colleagues but who works with them.”

Where did this guy come from? Where is Mr. Nunziata when you need him?

Maybe Mr. Nunziata is arranging a floral piece for the GOP's funeral.

Would you rather have boring or stupid, ineffective and corrupt? We already have the latter in that job in the 30th district.

We don't need someone who can beat Dizzy Lizzy. We need someone who can beat whoever is pulling Dizzy Lizzy's strings.

I think it's "dizzy" Lizzy that's usually pulling somebody's...uh...whatever.

Then she's back to lip service as usual, after a brief rest.
