The upscale development of Willets Point is one step closer to fruition.
The Queens delegation of the City Council voted Monday in favor of the sale of 23 acres of land across the street from Citi Field in Willets Point, where a tremendous overhaul of the area has been planned.

Community Board 9’s internal issues came to a dramatic climax Tuesday night when the board voted not to remove one of its longtime members, leading another to resign and walk out of the meeting, and two others to follow him.

Despite Democrats dominating citywide, Queens' lone Republican officeholder, Councilman Eric Ulrich, seen here with his wife Yadira and 1-year-old daughter Lily Tuesday night, appears to have won a second term, defeating his Democratic opponent, Rockaway civic leader Lew Simon, 53 percent to 47 percent.

Tuesday's elections turned out just as the pollsters and political junkies said they would.
Democrat Bill de Blasio strolled into the mayoralty of New York City, taking 73.3 percent of the vote compared to 24.3 percent for Republican rival Joe Lhota, according to preliminary Board of Elections figures reported by NY 1.
All these former Republican officials: Gov. Pataki, former Mayor Giuliani, former City Council members Mike Abel, Anthony Stabile, Tom Ognibene, Anthony Como and Dennis Gallagher, state Assemblyman Doug Prescott, state Sens. Frank Padavan and Serf Maltese and Congressman Bob Turner; along with current Councilman Eric Ulrich and Queens GOP Chairman Phil Ragusa have all collectively failed to assist Aurelio “Tony” Arcabascio in raising sufficient funding to run a competitive race against Democrat Melinda Katz (“I’m the ‘real Queens” candidate, Arc says,” by Peter C. Mastrosimone, Oct. 24).
As of April 1, 2013 there were more than 1,076,000 active voters in Queens, including 703,202 Democrats; 128,335 Republicans; 206,770 “blanks” (with no declared party affiliation); 27,556 Independents; 5,862 Conservatives; 3,280 Working Families and 1,235 others.
Arcabascio needed to raise a million dollars months ago to pay for direct mail, telephone banks and newspaper, radio and television advertising to overcome these overwhelming odds if he was to be taken seriously. This was necessary to level the playing field against Katz.
No wonder the last Republican Queens borough president was James A. Lundy, who served from 1952 to 1957. Ditto for Nat Hentel, who served as the last GOP district attorney in 1970.
By comparison, the odds of winning any million-dollar lottery are greater!
