Meet the candidates running to represent the 38th Council District


After a crowded Democratic primary, City Council’s District 38 will see a Democratic Socialist square off against a past competitor now running on the opposite party line.

Alexa Avilés, the lifelong Brooklynite, mom and organizer who handily won the Democratic primary to represent Sunset Park, Red Hook, Greenwood Heights and parts of Windsor Terrace, Dyker Heights and Borough Park, will face off against father and fourth-generation business owner Erik Frankel in the Nov. 2 general election.
