Friends and supporters of state Assemblywoman Margaret Markey (D-Maspeth) gathered at Dazies Restaurant in Sunnyside earlier this month to officially kick off the Queens lawmaker’s 2016 re-election campaign.
Markey was feted by five notable Queens elected women who served as honorary co-hosts for the evening, including Borough President Melinda Katz, Assemblywoman Cathy Nolan (D-Ridgewood), Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Glendale) and U.S. Reps. Grace Meng (D-Flushing) and Carolyn Maloney (D-Astoria).
Markey was first elected to her state Assembly seat in 1998.
In the Assembly Markey is chair of the Tourism, Parks, Arts and Sports Committee and is a member of the Ways and Means, Rules, Labor and Racing and Wagering Committees.
