2021 Elections: Who’s running for City Council in the 35th District


Seven candidates are currently looking to replace term-limited Councilmember Laurie Cumbo in the race for the 35th Council District that spans several central and northern Brooklyn neighborhoods. 

Since she took office in 2014, the district has changed dramatically, with fast-rising rents driving some long-time residents out of their neighborhoods, and increased development becoming among the hottest-button issues in the area.
