Mayor Eric Adams is wading into the special election for Assembly District 58 in East Flatbush, with the Democrat bucking his own party to endorse Hercules Reid, a young activist and his longtime aide.

Reid, 29, is running on the “Education is Key” ballot line in the special election to replace longtime area Assemblymember Nick Perry, who resigned after being confirmed as US Ambassador to Jamaica earlier this year. He will face Democratic and Working Families nominee Monique Chandler-Waterman in the May 24 contest, with early voting set to begin this Saturday, May 14.
