From the Neighborhood, For the Neighborhood

While he's running for City Council in Queens, Eric Gioia and his support committee held a fundraising reception in the loft apartment of Oxygen Media's Cheryl Mills, who is based in Manhattan. Eric met Cheryl, whom you may remember from the Clinton era when she was the White House Counsel. In her Asian-African, sparsely but finely appointed loft we heard from Queens Councilwomen Helen Marshall (who is running for Borough President) and Christine Quinn. We learned a bit more about the district. Cheryl spoke with conviction about her positive impressions of Eric and his dream to help the community he came from. Eric has a site (it's under construction right now), but you can learn more about this go-getter and getter-for-people at: www.ericgioia.com.
