Election Results 2017

There were no major surprises in the 2017 general election in New York City – the biggest is the historically low turnout, even lower than the primaries in September. With the number of precincts reporting at around 99%, below is a list of the winners and their percentages.
We still have one undecided contest – for Elizabeth Crowley’s seat in City Council District 30 (Middle Village, Glendale, Ridgewood and parts of Richmond Hill, Woodhaven and Forest Hills). Crowley said, “I am proud of my record and the campaign my team and I ran based on truth and hard work – values that I know my constituents care about. We have done tremendous work over the last nine years to make our communities a better place to live and raise a family, and I am confident once all of the numbers come in, we will have four more years to build on that success.” Republican Robert Holden, Crowley’s opponent, had no comment as we went to press.
It is still too close to call.
Other new public officials include former Assembly Member Francisco Moya (D) who ran unopposed to represent District 21 in the City Council, replacing Julissa Ferreras-Copeland who stepped down; and Daniel Rosenthal, who now represents District 27 in the State Assembly, replacing Michael Simanowitz, who unexpectedly passed away in September.
