Week in Review

Catch up on the week's top stories for Bayside, Douglaston and Little Neck.

It was a busy week for news in Bayside, Douglaston and Little Neck.

Republican Joe Concannon debuted his campaign office in Bayside, but was criticized later in the week by state Sen. Tony Avella, D-Bayside, for a robocall.

A Douglaston patient is granted the right to take herself off her respirator by a court, but then decides to remain on life support.

And a spokesman for the state’s Board of Elections says Councilman Dan Halloran, R-Whitestone, owes fines for his 2009 bid, but the councilman said all of his filings were complete.
