Today we spoke with Congressman Joe Crowley. Crowley, who is Vice Chair of the House Democratic Caucus and Chairman of the Queens County Democratic Party, addressed several issues. We spoke at a Three King Day celebration in Corona hosted by Council Member Julissa Ferreras.
I asked Crowley about the unfolding Chris Christie/George Washington Bridge lane closing scandal.
Congressman Crowley discussed the council speaker’s race, in which his candidate lost to Bill de Blasio’s candidate, Melissa Mark-Viverito, and his relationship with the mayor. (A little background is here.) He also discussed the mayor’s pre-K/middle school program initiative and the related proposed income tax surcharge. Here is his full Q&A.
