“It fills me with incredible sadness to learn of the passing of Mary Lu Plunkett, a dear, personal friend and pillar of the Queens County Democratic Organization. For over six decades, Mary Lu was committed to building stronger neighborhoods throughout our borough, and her influence on our political process was felt year after year. She leaves behind an incredible legacy, having helped welcome to Queens such dignitaries as Presidents John F. Kennedy and Jimmy Carter, and Governor Mario Cuomo. She played a fundamental role in our day-to-day operations and everyone who came in contact with her will miss her charm, warmth and kindness. I express my deepest condolences to her family and friends and join the borough of Queens in mourning her loss.”
