Councilmember Mark Weprin was unanimously elected Wednesday to chair the City Council’s Queens delegation, he announced in a statement.
“I look forward to advocating for much-needed funding for cultural groups and non-profit organizations in communities across Queens County,” he said. “To better serve our families in all 14 Council Districts across the borough, it is vital that the delegation continue to work as a united group.”
Weprin was a top contender in the speaker’s race before stepping back to support his colleague Dan Garodnick, the Queens Democratic Party’s pick, who was not successful in his bid.
