My name is Michael Conigliaro and I am running for City Council District 29 which encompasses Forest Hills, Rego Park, Richmond Hill, and Kew Gardens. I grew up in Kew Gardens and I graduated from Richmond Hill High School. I currently reside in Rego Park. I am a father of two beautiful daughters, ages 6 and 13, a member of the CEC District 24 school board, and a law office manager. I am a board member and legal advisor for the Bridge to Life Organization. I am also a lector at Our Lady of Mercy Church in Forest Hills.
Why I'm Running
I am running for city council because there is a dire need to take our city back. Our opponents are pushing for radical policies that put our community at risk. Common sense is being thrown out the window at our peril, crime is skyrocketing on our streets and subways, small businesses are struggling, property taxes are reaching unaffordable highs, an unwanted community jail is soon set to open with no support, and now we face rapid overdevelopment through unwanted high-rises.
FIGHTING FOR OUR COMMUNITY
Change begins with supporting the NYPD, preserving the SHSAT and the Gifted & Talented Program, fighting the impending Jail in Kew Gardens, defending our quality of life, spearheading property tax reform, aiding small businesses decimated by COVID-19, and going to bat for the forgotten middle class. Together we can bring these common sense reforms to the city council and keep our neighborhoods thriving and safe. Now let’s go and take our city back.
