2021 Elections: Who’s running for City Council in the 45th District


City Council District 45 is made up of Flatbush, Midwood, Flatlands, East Flatbush and parts of Marine Park. The district — currently represented by Councilmember Farah Louis — faces an influx of mega-developments, food and job insecurity, and other quality-of-life issues excascerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Louis, who first won the seat in a special election to replace now-Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, is one of just a handful of New York City Councilmembers who are not term-limited this election cycle. According to current Campaign Finance Board filings, Louis has three challengers for the upcoming June primary.
