2021 Elections: Who’s running for City Council in the 36th district


When Councilmember Robert Cornegy’s term expires at the end of this year, his successor will take over one of the most dynamic council districts in Brooklyn. 

The district spans Bedford-Stuyvesant and Crown Heights, and the next legislator will have to contend with the recovery from COVID, as well as the existing crises of gun violence, a lack of affordable housing, deed theft, struggling small businesses, and deteriorating conditions in public housing.
