Although I lost my first and only run for a political office ever, I am so greatful for all the support and encouragement given publicly and privately to enter the race late without political parties backing or funding my campaign and without having a profile or photo on the voter guide (that was a surprise) to get our message out about the lack of access to the people we vote for, about the misguided decesions being made regarding the allocation of park funds as well as a host of other issues negatively impacting our neighborhood.

I was warned that people would vote blindly and mostly democraticly down the line, but I am thankful to know that each person who was able to veer off track and find me on the ballot as an Independent voted for me with the intention of choosing me to represent our mutual concerns.

I am also glad that my opponent Councilman, Costas Constanides, ran the race without the bashing and slandering that we have seen in some elections and extend my congratulations and hope that he will truly be a great representative for our community in District 22 during his 2nd and final term as Councilman.

Here's to keeping him on his toes.

Ready To ‘Dive In’ To City Council Race
Kathleen K. Springer, well known in the community as an activist, real estate broker and former owner of Your Neighborhood Realty on Steinway, has entered the race for NYC Council in District 22 as an independent candidate running against the Democratic incumbent, Councilman Costa Constantinides.

Her recent year-long battle to save and restore the Astoria Diving Pool (see Facebook) has left her “dissatisfied with the lack of response from local elected officials who turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to the pleas from a large portion of the community who submitted a petition to the mayor August 2 to ‘save the pool rather than pave’ the pool.”

After not receiving a response from the mayor and not being able to meet with the councilman in regard to the petition, Springer decided to dive into the race and promises to be more accessible to her constituents if she wins the election, starting by putting her cell phone number on her flyer. Naming her party the “Dive In Party” with the historic diving platform as her platform, in addition to “more parks and swimming facilities in the rapidly growing community, accountability from politicians and agency officials, safety, infrastructure, traffic, environment, education, equality, and more.   Click here to see Gazette article
