for City Council
For nearly forty years, as a teacher and as a law enforcement officer, my life has centered on service. My desire to serve my community is stronger now than ever, and I believe that the experience and knowledge I have gained over the years will have real value in public office. With your support, I believe we can accomplish great things both for our neighborhoods in northeastern Queens, and for the whole city.
Let's start today, and let's do it together.

If you don’t recognize Dr. Frank Spangenberg from his time as an NYPD lieutenant, a high school teacher or as an adjunct assistant professor of criminal justice in John Jay College’s graduate program, you might recognize him from his winning streak on “Jeoporady!” in 1990. Spangenberg, who spent half of his life in Flushing and half in Douglastion, defines himself as a “pragmatic moderate who does not believe that good ideas are limited only to one side or the other of the political spectrum.”
