By putting more money into cleaning up the toxic waste discovered in water aquifers, under abandoned factories and in neighborhoods in southeast Queens, Hillary Clinton said she hopes to determine if there is a relationship between the sites and disease.
After Clinton spoke to more than 300 people last Thursday at the Bell Park Jewish Center at 231-10 Hillside Ave. in Queens Village, she sat down with a group of Queens reporters to discuss the problems that directly affect the borough, such as toxic waste, the relationship between the public and police, and health care.
Clinton is seeking the U.S. senate seat now held by Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-N.Y.), who is retiring, in a tight race against U.S. Rep. Rick Lazio (R-Brightwaters).
