My name is William Kregler and I’m running for Queens Borough President on the Republican and Conservative lines. I was born in Laurelton, Queens and currently reside in Woodside, Queens with my wife Janet and our two adult children. I started my career in public service with the Federal Bureau of Investigation as an accounting technician on the Bank Fraud and Embezzlement Squad. I then joined the New York City Housing Police Department as a Police Officer and later as a Field Training Officer. I switched over to the New York City Fire Department as a Firefighter and was promoted to Fire Marshal.
I have a Bachelors Degree in accounting from Brooklyn College. I spent over 10 years on Community Educational Council #24 where we built more schools than any other CEC. I have been very active in my community board issues in my neighborhood. I am also the President of the N.Y.C. Fire Marshals Benevolent Association. My reason for running is to address the unchecked over-development happening in Queens and bring back control of our neighborhoods to our local community boards.
This current administration has misled the community on issues of shelters as well as ignores community board votes and decisions when they conflict with the Mayor’s agenda. We also need to invest in our infrastructure in the areas of transportation and reopen abandon railways for the ever increasing population in our outer areas. I ask for your support in addressing these issues affecting our community by voting for me on November 7th for Queens Borough President.”
