Debra Markell Dominates Queens Civic Congress Forum
At a recent candidates’ forum hosted by the Queens Civic Congress, City Council hopefuls tried to wow the crowed with their command of the issues. From the start, it was clear that there were some who knew the issues, some who didn’t and some who could care less.
According to Queens County and government insiders it was no surprise to see that Markell was quick on her feet and knowledgeable on the issues during the Queens Civic Congress Forum. She was even humorous when she started out with “as you can see, I’m not just one of the boys” which received laugh from the crowds. Her combination of wit and poise coupled with her absolute command on the issues and her ability to articulate her beliefs made her the clear winner of the night’s forum.
Word on the street is that Markell is an extremely hard worker and has been running a very effective campaign. After the forum she has sent a clear message that she is a candidate to be reckoned with.
