Councilman Leroy Comrie, second from left, was honored on Nov. 19 by the Queens County Young Democrats for outstanding public service and his support of the organization. Comrie, who has represented the St. Albans area on the City Council for 12 years, is being forced out of office by term limits.
Appearing with the councilman are, at left, Jamal Wilkerson, the group’s vice president of diversity and outreach; chapter President Nick Roloson; and Executive Vice President Hersh Parekh.
The ceremony, which also paid tribute to outgoing City Comptroller John Liu, took place at Sangria’s in Jamaica.
“We have worked together on many issues, and every time it has been great to see so many young people continue to be politically engaged,” Comrie said. “It was a privilege to be honored by them and I encourage others to become involved in the organization.”
