Patch | Laurie Cumbo Holds On To Win NYC District 35 Election

Cumbo defeated Jabari Brisport, who was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America, 68 to 29 percent, according to the Times.

Like it was during the Democratic primary, the development of the Bedford-Union Armory became a point of contention in the race to represent Prospect Heights, Crown Heights, Fort Greene and Clinton Hill.

The city chose BFC Partners to develop the vacant Crown Heights armory, but some advocates were not pleased with the housing portion of the plan. Cumbo has said that she cannot vote for a plan that contains luxury condominiums but has left the door open for possible negotiations.
