Queens 30th Assembly District: Running from a Flower Shop

by Administrator, Nov 03, 2008
 

Democratic Assemblymember Margaret Markey faces Tony Nunziato on Tuesday. Markey has held her Queens Assembly seat for a decade.

Markey has $34,619.13 in her campaign account, and she received more than $10,000 in contributions, according to her most recent filing. Nunziato has $14,327 and received $1,650 during his most recent campaign finance filing.

Markey chairs the Assembly's House Operations Committee and spearheaded legislation banning the sale of boxcutters to minors.

Nunziato, whose name will be on the Republican, Conservative and Independence party lines, owns Enchanted Florist & Greenhouse in Maspeth, which he converted into his campaign headquarters. He has pointed out in campaign literature that Markey voted to do away with the commuter tax. He was vice chair of the Maspeth Chambers of Commerce.

The district includes Maspeth, Woodside, and portions of Long Island City, Middle Village, Astoria and Sunnyside.
