$100,000 State Grant to the Queens Tourism Council For World’s Fair Events Assemblywoman Margaret Markey (D-Maspeth) announced that the State of New York has awarded a $100,000 grant to the Queens Tourism Council to help it promote the borough as a destination during the upcoming year. The funds, which come from the NYS Department of Economic Development’s “I Love NY” program, will largely go to spreading the word about local World’s Fair commemorative events over the next six months. “Queens has a lot of terrific attractions for visitors and the anniversaries of the two World’s Fairs this year put an extra spotlight on some of the most important Queens cultural destinations,” said Assemblywoman Markey, who chairs the Tourism, Parks, Culture and Sports Committee of the NY State Assembly. “There are more than 43,000 tourism-related jobs in the borough, and the marketing programs of the Queens Tourism Council during this special World’s Fair anniversary year will also help boost our local economy.” This year marks the 75th and 50th anniversaries of the 1939 and 1964 World’s Fairs, which took place in Flushing Meadows Corona Park. NYC Parks is hosting a World’s Fair Festival on May 18, featuring memorabilia from the fairs, international food, music, dance, and more. Cultural institutions such as the Queens Botanical Garden, Queens Museum, Queens Theatre and New York Hall of Science are also planning special

activities related to these anniversaries. QTC intends to use the grant to launch an aggressive, multimedia marketing campaign to promote the borough as a great place to stay, play, eat, take in culture, enjoy family fun and do business. All the events are posted at www.itsinqueens.com/worldsfair. “The Queens Tourism Council does an outstanding job of providing tourists with the information they need to get the most out of their visits to the most diverse county in America,” Queens Borough President Melinda Katz said. “I am therefore thrilled to hear that Assemblymember Markey was able to secure a $100,000 allocation for the council in this year’s state budget. The money will fund a variety of council activities, including its promotion of World’s Fair Anniversary events organized by the World’s Fair Anniversary

Committee, which Assemblymember Markey and I co-chair. I commend Assemblymember Markey for her dedication to securing funding for the council and her tireless efforts to encourage tourists to visit the Borough of Queens and all its wonderful attractions.” “What can I say? Assemblywoman Markey comes through once again for the borough,” said

Queens Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Seth Bornstein. “She actually created the Queens Tourism Council about 20 years ago, when she worked for then-Borough President Claire Shulman. The group currently consists of some 50 entities, including hotels, cultural organizations, restaurants and venues such as Citi Field, the USTA and Resorts World Casino NYC.”

A STATEMENT FROM QUEENS LIBRARY Queens Library provides critically important educational and informational resources to 2.3 million people. In a special meeting of the Board of Trustees, a motion for a leave of absence for the President and CEO was rejected. Thomas W. Galante will continue his work leading the Queens Library. As part of its continued commitment to ensuring the library’s standing as a premier, nationally recognized library system, the Queens Library is pleased to announce that its Board of Trustees has adopted a series of reforms to its governance and operating policies and procedures. In the last six weeks, the Board of Trustees has moved very swiftly to implement a series of significant changes in policies and governance that strengthen the institution. The adopted actions include: * CREATION OF AN AUDIT COMMITTEE: The Audit Committee will assist the Board in improving oversight of the internal and existing external audit function, including the appointment of both internal and external auditors who will report directly to the Board and monitoring the implementation of audit recommendations. Members of the Audit committee have been appointed and their work has already begun. This committee will add an additional level of oversight. * A PROCESS AND TIMELINE FOR REVIEW OF EXECUTIVE CONTRACT: The Board is undertaking an independent and thorough review of the President & CEO’s employment contract. Evaluation will be made of the compensation and all contract terms of the Chief Executive Officer as compared to those of similar sized notfor-profit institutions. The work of the consultant is underway. * GOVERNANCE REVIEW: To include the views and expertise of the entire Board of Trustees on critical governance matters, a Special Committee on Governance has been formed; its work is already underway to review several serious matters recommended for consideration, including the current committee structure of the Board. * NEW CONFLICTS OF INTEREST POLICIES: A revised Conflict of Interest Policy for senior officers is in place to limit outside employment; to clearly define conflicts of interests for such employment and require senior officers to disclose any outside employment prior to accepting outside employment. Additional reviews have been authorized by the Board to determine if additional limits exist in comparable positions at similar non-profit organizations. Additional proposals to further increase transparency, accountability and governance are under review by the Board of Trustee Committees and we expect additional actions to be announced in the coming weeks. The mission of the Queens Library is to provide quality services, resources, and lifelong learning opportunities through books and a variety of other formats to meet the informational, educational, cultural, and recreational needs and interests of its diverse and changing population.

Addressing Looming Doctor Shortage Rep. Joe Crowley (D-Queens, the Bronx), Vice Chair of the Democratic Caucus, announced that a record-high 100 bipartisan members of Congress have signed on in support of his legislation to address the looming doctor shortage. The Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act will expand the current cap on the number of Medicare-supported training slots for doctors, helping to ensure teaching hospitals can meet the growing demands for more physicians. The announcement follows what is known as “Match Day,” when medical students across the country learned where they will go for the next stage of their required training. Reports indicate that nearly 1,000 U.S. medical school graduates did not initially match to a position, and even after the supplemental next stage of offers, the total number unmatched graduates is estimated to be several hundred. “On this ‘Match Day,’ we saw that too many graduating medical students were left without a residency position because there are not enough training slots. This bottleneck in doctor training is standing in the way of addressing the looming doctor shortage and discouraging promising younger

students from entering the medical profession,” said Rep. Crowley. “The broad, bipartisan support for this legislation demonstrates the urgent need to prevent the very real threat of a doctor shortage in this country.” According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the U.S. is expected to face a shortage of 45,000 primary care physicians and 46,000 surgeons and medical specialists – a stunning shortage of more than 91,000 doctors – by 2020. The Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act would increase the number of Medicare-supported hospital residency positions by 15,000 (3,000 slots per year, over five years), bringing the total number of slots available to approximately 102,000. The legislation also places an emphasis on expanding residency slots in primary care and other specialties necessary to meet the needs of a growing population. The Resident Physician Shortage Reduction Act was introduced in March 2013 by Crowley and Rep. Michael Grimm (NY-11) in the House of Representatives, and by Senators Bill Nelson (FL), Charles Schumer (NY) and Harry Reid (NV) in the Senate.

Street Renamed

Pope John Paul III Way

Margaret Markey joined City Councilmember Elizabeth Crowley and parishioners and visitors to Holy Cross Church in Maspeth on April 6 for the installation of signage that memorializes the visit of Pope John Paul II to the parish at a time when he was a Cardinal. Assemblywoman Markey said: “This co-naming of 56th Road as Pope John Paul II Way will provide all Maspeth residents and visitors to our community a permanent reminder of our historic connection to a revered spiritual leader who will soon be canonized as a saint.” The installation of the signage by the City’s Department of Transportation was initiated by Councilwoman Crowley upon requests from the parish, Polish American Congress, Jewish Historical Society of Queens, the Polish-Jewish Dialogue Committee. “As a borough that is home to many nationalities and religions, this Pope’s connection to Queens seems particularly appropriate,” added Assemblywoman Markey. “The first non-Italian Pope in 400 years, he boldly reached out to the many cultures and religions of the world, creating dialogue and championing human rights for all. This designation will forever remind us of our special connection to a revered spiritual leader for all Catholics, and of a man who showed us how to act with love and devotion for all humanity,” she said
