A winner hasn’t been officially declared, but Diana Ayala has a two point lead over Assemblymember Robert Rodriguez
Does the mayor face a general election challenge? What do the results in his race and all the others mean? Does low turnout diminish the victors?
Though officials winners have not yet been declared in two races, it seems likely that discussions about the rezoning discussions will likely continue in whatever way they were going before.
While one race remains too close to call, preliminary figures indicate that despite fierce challenges in several districts, not a single incumbent Council member was defeated.
In the wake of a victory that was both commanding and expected, the mayor outlined the theme that would guide his second term if he beats Republican nominee Nicole Malliotakis: a quest for fairness that pits the mayor against the status quo.
Fewer than one in nine registered Democrats in the district turned out for the election.
