Who won City Council races in Brooklyn?


Democrats had a good night in Brooklyn on Tuesday, as candidates across Kings County secured victories in elections sure to shape the borough’s future — though southern Brooklyn turned noticeably red, with high turnout among the borough’s Republican voters. 

Some contests saw a victor emerge in the early hours of election day, including Borough President Eric Adams in the mayor’s race, Park Slope Councilmember Brad Lander in the Comptroller’s election, and current-Councilmember Antonio Reynoso winning the borough president’s contest. Brooklyn native and Public Advocate Jumaane Williams also secured reelection to his post.
