Grace Meng to Run for Congress
Following the re-drawing of Congressional lines by a Federal court earlier this month, Congressman Gary Ackerman announced his retirement last week. Assemblywoman Grace Meng was then tapped by Queens Democratic leaders to run in the newly-created CD6. If elected, Meng will be the first Asian American member of the House of Representatives from New York. With primaries coming up in June, she would need to start campaigning immediately. Congratulations and best wishes to Grace Meng!
