Kagan leads Szuszkiewicz, but final call in close Coney Council race hinges on absentee ballots


Democrat Ari Kagan currently leads his Republican and Save the Planet party opponent Mark Szuszkiewicz, but with just under 300 votes between them, the race to rep City Council’s 47th District will hinge on absentee ballots for a final call.

“I feel great, I feel energized, I am very happy,” Kagan told Brooklyn Paper. “I am very grateful to voters of the 47th district for this honor, this consideration, this support. I am very grateful.”
