New Meaning For Political Party
Last night I had the pleasure of attending Councilman Gallagher’s fundraiser at Russo’s On the Bay. I attended the event because I am a member of Maspeth Town Hall and Mr. Gallagher graciously honored Eileen Riley during the program. I was amazed at the packed house and the diversity of the crowd. In attendance were elected officials, businessman, community leaders, residents, young and old. Approximately 400 people crammed the large banquet room to show their support for the Councilman and the night’s honorees. It was hard to believe that it was Monday night because of all the dancing, laughter and the good time had by all. It was a refreshing departure from the boring stuffy stiffed neck fundraisers I have attended in the past. It was more of a social event spent with close friends and family.
Congratulations to Councilman Gallagher for having such an impressive event. It was a true testament to his work as an elected official and an overwhelming show of support from colleagues, friends and his constituency.
