“It all starts with our homes. If our neighborhoods get ruined, the rest doesn’t matter."

In 2021, former Council Speaker Corey Johnson tried to eliminate our one-family neighborhoods citywide and force northeast Queens to build more high-density housing every decade - forever.
Paul was the leader citywide in stopping it.
In 2022 & 2023, Governor Kathy Hochul tried to eliminate our one-family neighborhoods statewide and give blanket amnesty for all illegal building conversions in NYC - forever.
Paul was, and continues to be, the leader statewide in stopping it.
For three decades, Paul has been protecting our neighborhoods in northeast Queens. No matter what the issue - zoning and land use, infrastructure and services, education and public safety - Paul has tirelessly advocated for our communities and fought to maintain our quality of life and property values.
Graziano said that Hochul’s idea was an existential threat to a large percentage of the state’s population. “The last time something like this happened was when Robert Moses was still running the show in the 1940s and ’50s,” Graziano said, “when he just bulldozered over local government and made decisions like this.” - LI Herald, February 10, 2022
