Longtime Civic Activist Celebrates 100 Years

Happy 100th birthday to Gert McDonald (front r.), an active member of the civic community who has worked tirelessly, expertly and energetically to address community issues affecting Sunnyside and other neighborhoods. At the milestone celebration this week, Borough President Katz presented a Proclamation recognizing Mrs. McDonald’s many accomplishments, including her history-making run for the New York State Assembly in 1968 as the first woman to be a Democratic candidate for public office in Queens. Also pictured are former Borough President Claire Shulman and Assemblyman Michael DenDekker.
