Councilman-Elect Hosts Thank You Party

ASTORIA – Costa Constantinides and his campaign team knocked on more than 12,000 doors, paving the way to 65.6 to 15 percent landslide victory on November 5 that sent to the New York City Council.

On December 5, up for air and being certain it was not a dream, he hosted a party to thank his staff and supporters.

The food was delicious and the fellowship was wonderful at the Powhattan Democratic club in Astoria. The energy level was also high thanks to Constantinides’ son Nicholas, who was having fun playing with his friends and brought smiles to the faces of all the guests.

Too young to have taken notes on the campaign trail, the experience made a strong impression, perhaps with political implications for the next generation: “Daddy I want to do more door knocking,” the four year-old told his father as the team approached the finish line.

Constantinides, who was accompanied by his wife Lori, thanked all who contributed to the victory.

On election night Constantinides called the experience humbling and expressed his pride in becoming the first Greek or Cypriot-American – his father Andrew was from Cyprus – on the City Council.

Looking to the future even as he savored the moment, he then declared “so now we must do the things that we talked about and I’m looking forward to getting started.”
