A Lifelong Advocate for Queens

MEET LARINDA

1Q7A9559.jpg

Larinda Hooks is a life-long community organizer and civic rights advocate.  She has a deep experience in successfully building coalitions in Corona, LeFrak City, and East Elmhurst that improve the lives of all who live here - both long-time residents and our newest neighbors. She is dedicated to uniting our community for better public schools, affordable health care, and improved public safety.

Larinda's Top Priorities

Economic Development

and Job Creation

From creating job development programs at Elmcor to fighting to help small businesses recover from the pandemic, to ensuring development projects benefit the community, Larinda is always fighting for us. In the Assembly, she will work to bring in new businesses and development projects that will create good, union jobs with a path to the middle class for local residents.

Quality Education and Programming for our Children

​As a NYC public school graduate and a mother of five children who all attended our public schools, Larinda knows how important our schools are for both our children and our communities. That’s why Larinda served as PTA President at Veritas High School and PS 127Q. She’ll fight to ensure that our schools are fully funded, to expand the community schools model, and make sure all our children have the resources they need to succeed - from early childhood education to free or low-cost after-school opportunities.

Expansion of Services

for Our Seniors

For more than a decade, Larinda has worked at Elmcor to improve and expand services for older adults. Larinda spearheaded the efforts to create three new senior centers in our neighborhoods - expanding one from a satellite to become a fulltime center, opening a senior center in Lefrak at the DEP building, another center at the Elmcor gym on 108th Street in Corona. From offering free trips, to arts and crafts, to physical health programs for seniors, including in-language programs in Spanish, nobody does more for our older adults and no Assemblymember will fight harder to deliver for them.

Affordable Housing and Homeownership

As a lifelong Queens resident, born and raised in East Elmhurst and Corona, Larinda has seen how skyrocketing rent and housing costs have driven displacement and the homelessness crisis. On the East Elmhurst Corona Civic Association, Larinda has fought to bring deeply affordable housing to our neighborhoods – including affordable senior and supportive housing on Northern Blvd. As our Assemblymember, Larinda will fight to create truly affordable housing for working-class and low-income families, spur additional housing development, protect local residents from eviction and displacement, and focus on infrastructure to stem flooding.
