Meet the candidates running to represent East New York’s 60th Assembly District


The special election to replace Charles Barron in East New York’s 60th Assembly District is in full swing: Friday marks almost a full week of early voting ahead of Election Day on Tuesday, Feb. 15.

The district, which is centered in East New York and also includes bits of Canarsie and Brownsville, had been represented by Barron from 2015 until last year, when he vacated the seat to assume his old City Council seat. Before that, it was represented by his wife, Inez, since 2009; Inez had been expected to seek the Assembly seat but instead chose to retire.
