Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley is running against Republican challenger Craig Caruana to keep her seat in the 30th District in the upcoming general elections on November 5, 2013.

Crowley was joined by her family, union leaders, community members, supporters and dozens of Queens and Brooklyn elected officials at her new campaign office over the weekend at 67-45 Myrtle Avenue.

“I can’t believe it’s been five years almost since I’ve represented this district,” Crowley said in front of her new office on Sunday afternoon. “Although we’ve done a lot, there is still so much more to do.”

The 30th Council District includes portions of Maspeth, Middle Village, Glendale, Ridgewood, Richmond Hill and Woodhaven.

Assemblyman Mike Miller congratulated Crowley for helping with the new renovations at the Woodhaven Library, as well as making sure firehouses stayed open.

“She’s a fighter for her district,” said Assemblyman Mike Miller. “She makes sure we get the funding that we need for the services that we need.”

State Senator Joseph Addabbo also threw his support behind Crowley's re-election bid.

“One thing I’ve always admired about Liz is her tenacity, her fight, her drive,” Addabbo said. ”She stood up to some of the worst budgets of our city’s history.”

Others at the campaign kickoff included Linda Monte from the Onderdonk House, Bob Monahan from the Greater Ridgewood Youth Council, New York Kiwanis Governor Joeseph Aiello, Maria Thompson from the Greater Woodhaven Development Corporation, and dozens more.

“It’s the perfect example of what Queens can do when we stand together,” said Melinda Katz, who recently won the Democratic primary for Queens borough president. “That’s why we are all here for Councilwoman Crowley.”
