Crowley jumps into Queens borough president race

Former Maspeth Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley is running again for Queens borough president.

After placing second last year to eventual winner Donovan Richards in the primary, Crowley has filed to run again in this year’s primary.

Crowley lost by more than 12,600 votes last year. She received 28 percent of the vote, which fell short to Richards’s 36 percent.

But Crowley led the field in fundraising last year and picked up some significant union endorsements. It was a good showing for Crowley, who has been out of office since her narrow loss to Bob Holden in 2017.

In addition to Richards, Crowley will face off against Councilman Jimmy Van Bramer, Justice For All Coalition organizer Stan Morse, mapmaker Danniel Maio and former staffer Diana Sanchez.

There’s also the new dynamic of ranked choice voting, which will allow voters to rank their preferred candidates in order rather than just picking one.

The primary is set for June 22.
