    As crime ticks up in Brooklyn, Eric Adams appears to have won the mayoral primary by one percentage point over Kathryn Garcia, including absentee ballots. Election results will be certified July 12. Adams’ background “helped him emerge as a candidate with perceived credibility on issues of both combating crime and curbing police violence,” according to the New York Times.

    In other hotly contested races, Brad Lander is likely to win NYC comptroller, and Antonio Reynoso will be Brooklyn Borough President.

    Lincoln Restler is in the lead for City Council for District 33, which stretches from Brooklyn Heights to the Navy Yard; Jennifer Gutiérrez won District 34, which covers north Brooklyn; and Darlene Mealy took back the seat in District 41, which runs from Bed Stuy to East Flatbush — to name only three of many close City Council races in which traditional and progressive Democrats challenged each other.
