Tomorrow at 12:00 PM, Senator Tony Avella will join four out of the five Democratic candidates for the 19th City Council District, John Duane, Paul Graziano, Austin Shafran, and Chrissy Voskerichian, at a press conference denouncing the negative tactics used by Jobs for New York, the political action committee backed by the Real Estate Board of New York, the City’s strongest and biggest pro-development advocacy group. Jobs for New York has endorsed Paul Vallone in this race.
Many of the council candidates have been the target of mailers from Jobs for New York attacking their respective records while often distorting the truth.
With overdevelopment being one of the biggest issues in this district, Avella will blast the attempts by the real estate industry to buy this important election and undue all the gains the community has made against overdevelopment.

WHERE: 213th Street and 41st Avenue in Bayside, Queens (near Bayside LIRR station)
WHEN: TOMORROW, TUESDAY, August 27 at 12:00 PM
