Brian Cunningham wins Dem nomination for Richardson’s central BK Assembly seat


Brian Cunningham won the Democratic nomination on Sunday for the special election in central Brooklyn’s Assembly District 43, securing over 90 percent of votes in the County Committee nominating process after a grueling and at-times tense seven-hour meeting.

The Assembly seat, which includes all of Prospect Lefferts Gardens, along with parts of Crown Heights and Flatbush, was vacated last month by Diana Richardson, who is now serving as Deputy Borough President under new Beep Antonio Reynoso.
