Early voters who turned out at the Creedmoor Hospital polling site Sunday were greeted to hundreds of people campaigning on behalf of their candidates in what in many respects was a traditional Indian family affair.
“Happy Fathers Day and please vote for my dad,” said the adult daughter of Hapreet S. Toor, who is running to represent the 23rd Council district that includes Queens Village, Glen Oaks and other areas of eastern Queens.
She was part of a large crew of Toor supporters—with most of them dressed in traditional Sikh clothing —handing out literature. Her older brother was also campaigning near the 79-25 Winchester Blvd polling site: ‘Please vote for my dad and this is what the ballot will look like.”
