Dear friends and neighbors,

Happy New Year, one and all!

As you know, our civic seeks to provide you the opportunity to get to know our local and Citywide elected officials in a relaxed, close-to-home setting. And so, we start our year off tremendously with a rescheduled visit from our City’s Comptroller, Flushing’s own John C. Liu, who will discuss local issues here in his own Queens backyard, touch on salient points of his recent State of the City Address, and answer your questions. (Mr. Liu is also expected by many to be making a major announcement right around the date of our upcoming meeting.)

Furthermore, you’ll get to know two newly-elected local NYS Assemblymembers, both brand-new to the political arena. Come meet Assemblymembers Nily Rozic and Ron Kim. You’ll surely be impressed by their youthful energy and exuberance, and their eagerness to serve us to their best abilities. Join us as Nily and Ron begin new careers in elected public office.

Our meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 6th from 7 to 9PM at New York Hospital Queens’ Lang Auditorium; enter the Hospital’s main entrance at 56-45 Main Street. Thanks go to our meeting sponsors: New York Hospital Queens, TD Bank & Zhong Hua Supermarket.

If you haven’t already signed up for current membership in our civic, please return your application to the address printed at the bottom of this letter, or just mail us your name and address. The easiest method, of course, is to email us your info at qhcivic@aol.com, with “Membership” in the subject line. Once again there is no membership fee for the 2012-2013 year due to the generosity of Councilman Peter Koo. Existing members: Please renew now.

We’ll again be marching in Flushing’s Lunar New Year Parade. It’s enormous fun! And the short march around Downtown Flushing helps keep you warm. So please join us! For details, provide us your address and phone number; we’ll get back to you soon. The Parade will start on Union Street & 38th Avenue at 11AM on Saturday, February 16th. Bring the family!


Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Yen Chou Energized By UFT Endorsement.

Yen Chou, a candidate for Grace Meng’s Assembly seat, has been endorsed by the mighty powerful UFT and her campaign is surely singing Oh Happy Day. Chou is a strong supporter  of an efficient education system and her work and commitment to students has been recognized throughout Queens.

The UFT endorsement is highly sought after because they can deliver a large number of boots on the ground for a campaign operation. They also have a huge, loyal following and tremendous clout in the community.

The following excerpt from the Greater New York Chinese Community Scholars for dollars highlights her teaching experience, which may have motivated the highly coveted endorsement.

Yen Chou’s extensive teaching experience started when she became a full time teacher at The Mary Louis Academy. Her teaching methods combine a rigorous curriculum that ensures academic achievement and a light environment that allows students to enjoy learning. The results were promising, winning her the Tandy Technology Scholars in 1995-1996 and her nomination for the Who’s Who Award for four consecutive years. Yen Chou also realized a growing need for Asian American immigrants to improve their academic standards. Thus, since 1996, she has also taught and eventually became dean of Aim Tutoring Academy in Flushing.
