QUEENS, NY —  Borough President Melinda Katz stated the following regarding the passing of Assemblymember Michael Simanowitz:
“I am deeply saddened by the loss of Assemblymember Michael Simanowitz, a great public servant who began his career as chief-of-staff to former Assemblymember Nettie Mayersohn more than two decades ago. Michael cared deeply about the people of Queens and fought tenaciously on their behalf throughout his distinguished career in public service. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends during this difficult time. Michael will be deeply missed by all who knew him and by all who are involved in the civic life of our Borough.”
