From the Daily News:
Surrounded by hundreds of supporters and a who’s who of the borough’s political landscape, Melinda Katz celebrated her inauguration as Queens Borough President.
“I am humbled and honored to be the Queens Borough President,” Katz, 48, told the standing-room-only crowd at Queens College on Thursday night.
“She’s the pride of Forest Hills,” said Mayor DeBlasio, who administered the oath of office as the Beep’s partner, Curtis Sliwa, and their two young sons watched from the side.
“You should never have to go over a bridge or under a tunnel to get anything you need,” said Katz, quoting her late father, David, after she issued a lengthy list of acknowledgements to many of her supporters.
So she's going to see to it that all Queens-related hearings are held in Queens? That there will be enough jobs in Queens to make commuting elsewhere unnecessary? This sounds like the first of many ignorable dispatches from the Katz litterbox.
