Donovan Richards Wins Queens Special Election | Politicker

First victory for the City Council Progressive Caucus which is co-chaired by our
own Brad Lander along with Melissa Mark-Viverito. Congrats to Donovan Richards and the CPC.

With all absentee and affidavit votes counted, Mr. Richards padded his
razor-thin 26-vote Election Day margin with another 133 votes, while
his main competitor, Pesach Osina, only gathered an additional 80.
This brought the unofficial tally to 2,646 for Mr. Richards and 2,567
for Mr. Osina, a wide enough margin to avoid an automatic recount. The
results will be certified next week.
We could use a more progressive council.  Check out the Progressive Caucus and help to make it so.
