Bichotte, Barrons in proxy battle for East New York Assembly seat


The dynastic Barrons could see their East New York political dominion snatched away if a special election scheduled for next month goes the way of Brooklyn Democratic Party boss.

The State Assembly seat in East New York’s 60th District, which was held by Charles Barron from 2015 until last year, and also by his wife Inez for the preceding six years, is now open after Charles was reelected to his old Council seat, while Inez, having just finished two terms in the Council herself, decided to retire instead of seeking her former Assembly seat as she was widely expected to.
