Queens Borough President Donovan Richards Will Serve As The Keynote Speaker for the United Black Men of Queens Foundation, Inc.
Golf Outing Dinner Awards
Donovan Richards, Queens Borough President, will serve as the Keynote Speaker for the United Black Men of Queens Foundation, Inc. Golf Outing Dinner Awards on May 19, 2023. He is the 21st President of the Borough of Queens, and is a member of the Democratic Party.
As a former Council Member, he chaired influential committees on Environmental Protection and Public Safety, while also leading the Subcommittee on Zoning and Franchises, resulting in historic citywide investments in affordable housing, police oversight, clean energy and infrastructure — including a $2 billion investment in new sewer and water infrastructure to alleviate chronic flooding issues across Southeast Queens.
As Queens Borough President, he has been a tireless advocate for The World’s Borough. Over the course of his administration, Borough President Richards has allocated more than $100 million dollars across Queens’ schools, cultural institutions, hospitals, libraries, parks and more local projects.
