The team of Power Women of Queens is proud to present the first guest on the show for 2016: The Honorable Melinda Katz, the 19th Queens Borough President who has been a dedicated public servant for nearly 20 years. The trailer of this interview was included and played in this year’s State of the Borough Address, delivered at Colden Auditorium on the campus of Queens College. In this episode, Luchia sits with the leading lady of Queens and talks about women’s issues, government and how she is able to balance career and motherhood. You will discover what are the most challenging projects she has worked on and the ones that she is most proud of during her tenure. It’s not a coincidence that she has been called a “cheerleader” for the borough, although she prefers the term “advocate.” She shares with us how Queens has changed in the past 2 years, and how she sees the Borough in the next 3 years.
