Ingrid Lewis-Martin represents Brooklyn’s best as Adams’ chief advisor


Brooklyn, the Big Apple’s best and brightest borough, has taken center stage in city politics as a new generation of leaders, many of whom hail from Kings County, have moved into prominent roles. Comptroller Brad Lander and Public Advocate Jumaane Williams are both from the Borough of Churches, and, of course, the Chief Executive, Mayor Eric Adams, is a proud born-and-bred Brooklynite.

Even within Adams’ brand-new administration, Brooklyn has taken a prominent position. A number of the mayor’s high-level advisors are Brooklynites by birth or by choice — including his chief advisor, Chaplain Ingrid Lewis-Martin.
